The colors, shapes and over all beauty that surrounds us especially in Aruba are astounding.
Colors – Emotions…
Have you truly stopped to look around you at all that Nature? At Mother Earth? Truly look at whatCreation has gifted each of us.
I had the pleasure of traveling to Aruba recently, maybe its the allure of somewhere new or something different. But truthfully its jaw dropping how beautiful the variety of colors and the shapes are and how they affect you.
Colors & Shapes to Inspire
How they make you feel especially… Do you feel the calm? The peacefulness when looking at body of water without much motion? Similairly the gentle lapping of the waves upon the shore?
Does your blood rush faster with the approaching storm? Or with the waves crashing on the rocks below? Comparitively how does the grey, angry purple clouds looming above influence your emotiosn? Did you react with the sudden strike of a lightening bolt, awash in the blue-white light…
Do shapes inpire?
What about shapes? A knife sharp edge, or the cirular ripples a drop of water in a bowl portray…
It is understandable why people paint abstract art, consequently if they are feeling the strong rush of adrenaline and emotion in each rush of color.
On a personal note I prefer the realism in a painting so that I can absorb each individual aspect of the artwork and form ourr own emotional bond.
Specifically it amazes me how a good photograph can capture the moment in time; the joy or overall feeling it is intent on portraying. You only have to turn on your television or look online to see something that captures your eye; possibly your heart.
Enjoy my photography below, and as always I welcome your comments and views on how you feel looking at the beauty in each.
I can’t wait to Paint!
