Even though I usually paint wide open natural spaces, sometimes it’s good to look more closely at the spaces hidden in small universes.
This oil painting is of a raindrop about to fall from the petal of a red flower. A simple moment, a slice of time and space.
What raindrop is about to fall in your life, to bless you with an abundance of nourishment?
I don’t usually paint realistically, but this flower wanted some detail, to draw us in. Don’t you love how art tricks the eye — just like life does.
A trick of the eye and we believe in a false self.
Consider letting this painting invite you to turn your attention inwards, to discover the treasure of the true self. To look beyond the images and words of the mind, to find what is awake and aware.
