The Heart of It
53 x 53 x 5.5 cm
Framed in Natural Timber
Acrylic on Stretched Canvas
What is the fundamental and integral part of your 'being'…what makes you 'you'? Is it your heart, mind, both? The heart is our inner sanctum that breathes life yes, but when faced with fear, doubt, confusion, and decisions to make it's also what wins out sometimes over our minds! Sadly, at the heart of it our hearts can sometimes be flawed. What rings true for us might not be true for someone else. We follow our hearts without thinking of consequences and without processing 'reason' with our minds. So we need both. Hearts and minds together. An open heart willing to listen to a responsive mind; to listen to others, to understand empathy, nurture kindness, inspire hope, to spread love and light.
This expressive and textured seascape, full of light and hope, captured my heart in it's creation, and got me reflecting on the thoughts above. After all, there's nowhere that fills my heart more than the coast, especially at sunrise or sunset.
NB: While every effort is made to capture the true colours and details of my artwork, every screen is different and art viewed online does not do my work justice. Slight differences may be evident between a screen image and the true textures and tone of my work which is more vivid and beautiful in reality. Scale may also be slightly off due to the insitu art app used, so please ensure you measure your space.
