Flow…

Sharing one from my series of Circular Artworks painting today and a very powerful poem by Rumi.

I feel somehow it connects with this poem…

Flow : Textured Artwork by Savvy Raj

“There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.

Drink all your passion and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes to see with the other eye.
Open your hands if you want to be held.

Consider what you have been doing.
Why do you stay
with such a mean-spirited and dangerous partner?

For the security of having food. Admit it.
Here is a better arrangement.
Give up this life, and get a hundred new lives.

Sit down in this circle.

Quit acting like a wolf,
and feel the shepherd’s love filling you.

At night, your beloved wanders.
Do not take painkillers.

Tonight, no consolations.
And do not eat.

Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover’s mouth in yours.

You moan, But she left me. He left me.
Twenty more will come.

Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought.

Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

Flow down and down
in always widening rings of being.”
– Rumi

Vibrance

I dream in vividness of vibrance

Of colours in all shades and hues

All things bright and beautiful

Of beauty & lightness of being

With the joyful spring in my step

And a grateful heart, I choose to paint

My thoughts today…

Sending Hope & healing

And Good energies to one and all!

Colours of Hope

Every part of nature  has a reason to be
Every  plant a sign of possibilities
Every  tree a symbol of purpose
Every bud symbol of hope in the blooming
Every bloom a sign of joyfulness of being.

Nature is abundance
With all colors shapes and patterns
If happiness is a colour of a flower
Which one would it be for you?

In this now would pick brightest of blues
Would  not hesitate  to pick the purples
Would also be inspired by golden yellows
What about you?

Colors of life

There is always a path meant for u

Explore the myriad colors of life

In all shades and hue…

What you choose to see

Is how it appears to be

Acknowledge the gifts of life

As they come to you in time.

For Colors make life come alive.

What do you see? Day 2

Hello my dear readers,

Every day for three consecutive days I am sharing one of my own paintings from my Artworks Collection.

Every painting will be shared without the title. I would love to understand what your interpretation is of the painting. Then the next day I will reveal my original title and thoughts on the painting.

Here is a share of my Painting on Day 2

vortex (1)

Please write the first 3 words that come to mind the moment you see it.

Lets together see if what I have tried depicting through my painting has reached you. Or better still you may have your own interpretation which I would love to read.

Must add, absolutely fascinating word interpretations to yesterday’s painting.I appreciate you for playing along and contributing with your interesting word choices. Some of your words have truly made me think again, so thank you for that! Please play on, I look forward to your words to my picture today.

As promised… Day 1: My yesterday’s painting share was titled Faces I ave always enjoyed and love drawing the human face & profile. I created a face in a face and kept shaping the profiles, side by side depicting the many dimensions to the face, as I continued to flow through with it. There is certainly a whole lot of blues depicting the moods and the mind. My interest in drawing the human face also made me write these two poems:

After all there are so many facets to the faces we see around us.

How many faces did you see, I wonder?
