My friend was preparing his brushes for his insane Art Practical Final. the afternoon sun was flowing through the window and catching the resin on the brush. seemed so… i dunno actually… but for some reason this picture just speaks happiness and calm for me…

The title is from an awesome song by High Places
sen·tience n. – meaning…
1. The quality or state of being sentient; consciousness.
2. Feeling as distinguished from perception or thought.
I love this word, it just describes how art is to me, it affects my senses, it makes me aware, im always seeing, visually dreaming, seeing the bigger picture… here are the lyrics:

From small speck of stardust to wondrously sentient
Revolving and spinning in space
Waking and sleeping and yielding to gravity
It starts to show on your face

Millions of forces of physics and providence
Teamed up and brought us all here
Waking and sleeping and yielding to gravity
Pointless to measure in years

Out in the desert your thoughts are as clear as the stars
You feel golden
You’re billion year old carbon

the lyrics just say it all, so profoundly amazing…

This video isn’t the whole song but its a brilliant take on the song…
Here is the whole song
