Pastel on paper.
Shakespeare wrote the romantic tragedy 'Romeo and Juliet' roughly 430 years ago. Even in todays world you can turn on the radio and romantic songs are repetitiously given airtime and again in novels and movies. Romance sells, we are literally saturated in romance. Is the vile of poison the two young lovers drank from in Shakespeare's story a message for humanity about the pitfalls of overdosing on romantic love? We even call this movement towards love 'falling in love'. So, what does 'Rising in love' look like? I was contemplating this over the last few days whilst moving about my studio and making art. I though about 'unconditional love' the idea that there need not be conditions we put on others to be a certain way, but just accept what is and move with freedom from within. Perhaps the ultimate form of love is 'Self love' finding that place within, not beating yourself up with negative dialog, but filling yourself with a dialog that is caring and optimistic, experiencing without judgement, without conditions.....in the flow... Tranquilla…. I have experienced this in my own life, when I've deliberately chosen to drop the perceived damaged or unfulfilling aspects in relationships of all kinds and orientate myself towards a brighter outlook, magic happens, results appear and very quickly things improve. When in Rome don't do as Romans do! hahaha my new motto ;)
