The Glamourous Life- Chapter One -Straw Hat
Straw Hat 12"x12" Acrylic on Canvas
Are we not living in the most magical time? We can create and destroy worlds. We can have the awareness that we make this choice moment to moment, if we choose to.
I am sure, absolutely certain in fact, that everyone has the manifestation moment, when a thought gently surfaces in the mind, and voila! in a short time it is the current experience.
The person phones, the Chinese food is delivered to your door, the perfect chair is just given to you... a manifestation moment.
Painting, for me, is that place of non thinking gentle surfacing. It is a good place to imagine those experiences that I have had or look forward to having... and share them with you.
This Straw Hat is a rendition of Anna Shoub's Daisy Rose twisted straw hat. (http://www.hatjunkie.com/) The swish of a turquoise linen dress. And bare feet laughter in the elegant doorway of a brick house in southern France, Spain, Nova Scotia...
Ah...Stéphane Grappelli 's Django can dance you right to the place in this picture.
Thanks to Kaylyn Munro for the music... and LoML for knowing and finding it.
