Finding my Bliss

Joy of Joys

I have posted this art before, I'm posting it again!
because of the absolute 
JOY 
it brings me 
whenever I look at it!
Yes it was digitally composed and yes, 
because of the abundance of digital images
some would not consider it art or give it a second glance.
But this is one of my all-time favourite creations,
 here is why I love it ~ 
I was at one, totally absorbed in the creation!


The intuitive feeling that the original image (a photo) would
 become something more, something other,
a layer of different meaning, 
I didn't know what that meaning was
at the time but trusted that it would reveal itself to me, 
and so it did after my random manipulations! 
~
Looking down at my creation here is what I saw
~
I was one of the two birds, I had flown to a faraway 
place now hovering over a sun-drenched coastline,
the sun reflecting beams of light into the air,
the other bird was a friend, a native, 
who had risen to greet me.
Both of us are elated to share 
the greeting and were viewing the wonderful land 
and the promise of beautiful things to come.

The bird represents my online friends,
the coastline with sunbeams rising represents
the beautiful places I visit there virtually with my friends.
More than that it represents the dream I have 
of visiting face to face one day.

So this image represents my dream,
 it came up from my deepest Self,
 that is why I love it.

totally absorbed - THAT is the key. THAT is what makes it art.

The judge of what art is, is what your soul sees. I see the beautiful story you wove in colors and shapes. Absolutely most creative.

Ah, Sue, you have captured my thoughts completely. I don't know what I would do without the wide world opened to me through blogging. I have traveled places I would otherwise never have gone to. THAT brings me joy.
