Calligraphy Painting - Texture of Nature - 11 x 14 SALE
Abstract acrylic painting with textured surface with stenciled and handmade leaf shapes and patterns and mark-making with hand scripted calligraphy in both black and white by Seattle mixed media artist and calligrapher Caitlin Dundon. Inspirational script reads:
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. he experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its Beauty. - Albert Einstein. The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness. - John Muir. We need the tonic of wildness....At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature. - Henry David Thoreau. The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature. - Joseph Campbell. The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unahappy is to go outside, somewhere they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will I know that there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. - Anne Frank. Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. - Ralph Waldo Emerson. Everything in nature invites us to be what we are. - Gretel Ehrlich, If you will stay close to nature, to is simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable. - Rainer Maria Rilke. Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints. - Chief Seattle. If nature has taught us anything it is that the impossible is probable. - Ilyas Kassam. Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt. - John Muir. I believe in God, only I spell it Nature. - Frank Lloyd Wright.
