"At rest, however, in the middle of everything is the sun."— Nicolaus Copernicus
I've been working on this painting for the past couple of weeks. The photo I used was another from the amazing photographs at Vineyard Colors.
I was drawn to paint it for several reasons. First, I am always attracted to strong patterns of light and dark; the colors and somber mood entranced me; while the quiet solitude of resting boats, anchored in trust and faith that the sun will return, resonated with my tired soul moored along still waters at the end of day.
William Penn said, "True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. For me a day without long periods of silence is a day I was not fully present. "Be still and know that I am God."
At ease mates,
