Beauty. . .

Today I have decided to share one of my favourite inspirational quotations with you:

"In a world of disorder and disaster and fraud sometimes only BEAUTY can be trusted.
Only artistic excellence is incorruptible. To devote yourself to the creation and enjoyment of beauty,
then, can be a serious business - not always necessarily a means of escaping reality, but sometimes
a means of holding on to the REAL when everything else is flaking away into rhetoric and plot."
-E. Gilbert- (from her book :  "EAT PRAY LOVE")

A   favourite painting of mine.  Mixed media on canvass, I used oil pastels, acrylic paint, gauze, wax crayons, "engraving techniques" and texture paste.
