    What is the difference between happy and joy?  "Joy is an inner feeling. Happiness is an outward expression. Joy endures hardship and trials and connects with meaning and purpose. A person can pursue happiness...but chooses joy." (Compassion Aust def.)


    I love this definition so much! It's so true. We have a choice; to choose joy despite the hardships, to find joy when the days aren't happy ones, to bring joy to others when they're struggling to find it.


    This big beautiful seascape brought the happy in creating it...and continues to bring the joy after. On not so happy days when I'm struggling, I choose to find joy and get lost in it's harmony of colourful hues and textures. It brings the joy for me...and I hope it will bring the joy for whoever chooses to give it a new home. 


    This is a colourful statement piece in any space to reflect upon, to inspire, and encourage all who see it.


    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 tone and textures 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.
