To Dream of Skies…. we look up and wonder.
Indigo cloud storms darken the day for a little while; but we know the sun will indeed return.
Giving us sunrises of sweeping cerulean blue tinged with the palest of naples yellow low, on the horizon. Soft peach and apricot flickering delicately like wings upon the tips of the morning clouds.
We look up, with wonder in our eyes.
The artist within yearns to capture, to convey, to express those colors painted in the sky and the deepest emotions they bring forth.
We try. We struggle. We give it our best shot.
Sometimes…….. we come close. Thats enough.
Our paintings rarely achieve the same quality of shimmering air and freshness.
The ‘aliveness’ of that very moment, beating in time with our hearts. It has been done, but I’m still working on it.
Our photographs seldom convey the human depths we feel and sense as we look up and wonder.
How can it, really?
The intangible. The inexpressible…..
where words fail, paints falter, and the camera is but a shallow reflection.
the artist looks up with wonder and tries once more.
My WordPress friend at ancientskies has inspired this post today with his wonderfully textured writings that make me Think. I always find them peace giving and heartfelt. His writings were the Catalyst today. Causing me to divert from my planned article to go a different direction.
