Art

Art - my new passion for 2016

At the end of last year I took up watercolour painting and I am loving it.  Art is so relaxing. I was between jobs and thought I would try my hand at it.

So here is my impression of Uluru or Ayer's Rock in Australia. Looks pretty easy to paint, but trust me it is not.


The Aboriginal people believe that Uluru was created at the beginning of time by Spirit people and is hence considered a sacred or spiritual place.

I've never been to Uluru but would  love to visit. Somehow I've always felt it was a place of significance though I don't know what that significance is. Perhaps that will be clear when I get there someday.

This week I went back to work - same place I finished up at in September so I am thrilled to be back there as I love it there.

My son got accepted into the Architecture Master's programme so I am thrilled about that and so proud of my boy.

Been reading Beyond Past Lives by Mira Kelley - an interesting read though some parts of it I did not resonate with. But then that is what books are all about - you take what feels right and discard what doesn't. Her book raised a lot of questions so I guess from that perspective that's good.  Will have to meditate on the answers.

I hope you all had a good week.

    I am happy to know that the new year has started on a good note for you :)
    Happy for your son and I also loved that book. Sure there are some aspects to that book but if you continue to ponder upon...you shall embrace it. The past--destiny--happiness!

  7. Beautiful painting Suzy! And I believe you when you say it is not easy! Unlike oils, watercolors paintings are not easy to manipulate or rectify! Enjoy this beautiful and creative hobby.

  9. That's a great passion to have, Suzy! I always fancy trying it too. I was hopeless in my schooldays and have never lifted a paintbrush since, but people change, don't they? Have a happy week! :)

  13. Congrats to your son! Am intrigued with the Aboriginal people - and love their art. Do they still live separate, or have they nowadays integrated with the Westerners? Thanks for visiting me!

    1. Thanks Beloo. Yes Uluru is a very spiritual place. But I think we have to be there to feel it.
