Life is the Dancer

Hello dearest readers.

Thank you for visiting.

Here you can view my latest mixed media mantra painting.

“Life is the dancer and you are the dance” -Eckhart Tolle.

(No, it’s not the wrong way around folks.)DANCER-#1Recently I started reading Mr. Tolle’s books, and my life is slowly but surely changing for the better.

This mantra is being explained by him as follows:

“There are three words that convey the art of living, the secret of all success and happiness: One With Life. Being one with life is being one with Now. You then realize that you don’t live your life, but life lives you. Life is the dancer, and you are the dance.”

~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life’s PurposeDANCER-#2I loved doing this painting…went overboard with the drippy method and enjoyed every minute of it.DANCER-#3The photo of the tattered ballet shoes is one of Teresa Dear. She was so kind to give me permission to use her photo in my painting.

Check out her work, it is fantastic.

DANCER-#4I think I used almost every method possible on this one, but the drip and stamping is still my favorite.DANCER-#5

DANCER-#6Hope you are inspired and have a bit of a twirl on this beautiful Easter weekend.

Happy Easter and Happy Crafting!
