My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”

    What a beautiful pink! They’re like flamingoes!

  • Thanks Mel. I’ll believe you ~ though I’ve never seen Flamingos in real life, pref. in the wild – now that would be something most awesome!
