The colours and hues are changing this side of the world. The days becoming shorter but the temperatures, so much kinder than our summers.
Autumn… my favourite season of the year.
I was standing under this huge tree. The sights of golden leaves falling gently to the ground. It felt like when butterflies are fluttering around one. Like a whisper of transformation yet again…. because our souls are always evolving. We live life in cycles…. just like Mother Nature does. A sense of beautiful change… a release of the old and a making space for the new to emerge.
As I walked further, I came across this exquisite morning light touching the leaves of this tree where this horse was grazing. It took my breath away.
All around me was this intense lush beauty and serenity. Down below the pathway, a river running through. I can’t even describe enough how this beauty makes me feel, but as walked, these words came to me:
When a woman communes with nature, something inside her soul is awakened.
There were moments when I felt guilty for not being in my studio, at my easel, and then I realized that as an artist, this is part of my work. Taking time to breathe in inspiration. Taking time to listen deeply to the Divine Intelligence that lives within each of us.
I am feeling the call from within to begin adding more nature to my art. Nature was one of my loves as a very young child – as I wandered and played joyfully in our garden. Nature was the way I expressed comfort to my grieving granny through a painting I created for her. Nature was what I painted and what I meditated on, as I felt life again during a Post Natal Depression. Nature was what I painted as I consciously chose beauty, light and joy for myself as I transitioned out of marriage.
Nature is where I can quiet the rest of the world and hear the whispers of my soul.
Nature is where the wise part of our feminine spirit is nourished on a deep deep level.
