"The moment one gives attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious awesome indescribably magnificent world in itself." ~ Henry Miller
When i read this quote it was an instant connection, "yes!!" that is exactly how i have always felt, but never quite put that belief into words. It's akin i suppose to "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", but it goes much farther than that, putting the wonder of the object totally within us. We have to be open to see it's wonder, & then allow ourselves to express the feeling of what we are beholding.
That is how i paint, more than what i see, i paint what i feel.
This is a mixed media piece- a miniature watercolor painting (ACEO), combined with collage. It is entitled "Even a Blade of Grass".
