To Live in Beauty



To live in Beauty
is to learn to dance
in the Soul’s rhythm.

I like this image. I had approached my art with the thought of having an image that represented my core.

Unfortunately, I was out of my typical black paper. If you are unfamiliar with working with pastels or charcoals, the paper is just as important as the items in which you are drawing.

Given that I now disperse pastel pigments over the paper and wait to see what shows itself, I really had no idea what I was doing. This paper does not hold the pigment in the same way, so it was some serious trial and error to see what would emerge.

For some reason, looking at the work as a whole and the question I was asking, this process felt “right”. I am exploring something new- both in my art and in my life- learning to dance to the Soul’s rhythm.

  1. What a magnificent metaphor! Can you see what I see in your work (and that includes the words, thoughts and the process which go with your images)?

    Art… is all about the layers sometimes rather than the end result 🙂

  2. Love! Dance to your soul’s rhythm. This is so awesome because it is exactly along the lines of what I was thinking when I read your fairy tale comment about your work situation…couldn’t have said it better love
