Let All the Earth Keep Silent

Glorious sunshiny days combined with a recent snowfall make for wonderful photos showing that gorgeous winter light. We’ve had plenty of that over the Christmas holidays so what did I do? I took my trusty phone and went snowshoeing. My phone takes perfect pics that later inspire my paintings. 

When I found this spot, I stood still. The light was gorgeous and splayed out over the rocks in a abstract pattern.  And then it hit me – there was absolute silence. And I realized again just how lucky I am to live in this natural paradise and I silently gave thanks right there.

As Mother Theresa once said:

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch our souls”

  1. Marike,, your painting is very serene, peaceful and full of light. It is in the silence and stillness that our creative flow is born. Many blessings to you and your family this year! xx Dianne
