A Heart Enflamed

IMG_0309
Bloom 12 X 12 acrylic, ink, oil crayon, and charcoal for Three Muses

Beauty is not a need but an ecstasy.
It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand stretched forth,
But rather a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted.
It is not the image you would see nor the song you would hear,
But rather an image you see though you close your eyes and a song you hear though you shut your ears.
It is not the sap within the furrowed bark, nor a wing attached to a claw,
But rather a garden for ever in bloom

Kahil Gibran

If we were all locked in a room for a month or two with nothing but the writings of Kahil Gibran to keep us company we would be all the better for it. This verse is exquisite.
Your painting is dramatic and striking and even hypnotic. I find my eyes being drawn back to it time after time. Superb. Thankyou so much for sharing it with us, Kathy.
