Today, I was looking up art to add to my collection. Specifically looking for something with a spanish flair of romance. I went through my carefully mapped out list I created several years ago that keeps growing as new elements draw me to various styles. I came across Hamish Blakey maybe a little over a year ago when I was looking for a piece for my friends foyer. I wanted to share two of his pieces that I just fell in love with. His ability to capture the essence of life in the movement and eyes is beyond beautiful. If you have the time on your hands; I recommend for you to browse his sight. You will not be disappointed.
As you all have read in my previous post; I do believe inspiration comes from many avenues. At the moment; it is pieces of art that captures my eye. It brings me joy to share with you a different perspective of beauty. I’m not too sure of many of you, but I get tired of hearing, reading, and watching the chaos that unravels in the world.
Please, don’t take offense. I’m not saying those unfortunate situations hold no merit. I just need a replenishment of something beautiful which captures the essence of life. I believe it is human nature for us to carry burdens deep within to which they have the power to change or perspective to a negative sight. Many of times we fail to see the beauty that is around… in us. It pains me to realize that at this very moment; while i’m writing this post; there are those whose situation may be life draining…dealing with famine, underserved abuse, stolen rights, war and much much more.
I have learned early on that we may not have control of circumstances but we do have control of our reaction or acceptance. This being said; I choose to try to share what helps me get through those tough times. Sometimes it’s the beauty in a smile, a word, a touch or what catches the eye.
I have no usual poem this evening as Kewin Cosmos sings it best.
“Por su voz de los ángeles”
