Have you ever imagined yourself inside a painting?
You know… when you see a piece that speaks to you, and you just know in your heart of hearts that you could be there… in that painting… living that life.
If you never have… how about trying it now?
I recently found two oil paintings by the same artist, and they let my imagination fly.
Since I’m Canadian I imagine this is a small hamlet on the east coast of Canada.
Yes, that works for me. I’ve been there and I’m going to let this painting take me back, but this scene could be anywhere you like.
Imagine this is an inlet of the ocean.
Imagine driving down to the edge of the road and getting out of the car to check out the soul-calming view.
Imagine taking a water tour of the area in one of these charming sailboats… feeling the wind in your hair and peace in your heart
Imagine a lazy waterside picnic while listening to the sounds of the waves and the birds.
What’s the water that lies beyond this small hamlet?
Imagine it’s the ocean calling to you, and leading you to all the beautiful places in this world.
Like this cottage garden in the English countryside.
Imagine taking a stroll along this lovely pathway lined with all these incredible colours.
Imagine the yellow daffodils and the red jonquil…
…the blue delphiniums and pink hollyhocks.
Imagine falling asleep after afternoon tea on a lovely scented blanket of softly fallen blossoms from this gorgeous pink cherry tree.
What a beautiful way to spend an imaginary day.
Thank you so much to the unknown and very talented B. Allen for putting these paintings out into the world for me to discover and enjoy.
And thanks so much to you for reading, and until next time… imagine. Just imagine.
