"The contemplation of beauty causes the soul to grow wings" - Plato Whenever I look at Nature, I find myself contemplating on the natural beauty in front of me and about life in general. The more you look into this framed painting, the more of the natural beauty you'll find. Look at the reflections. Where does your mind take you?
One of my favourite things to do is to sit at the edge of the water and look at the reflections. I feel inspired by what I see. To me they are not just reflections of objects or buildings. In fact, they are reflections of life. The objects, buildings, and Nature are all interconnected.
Creating abstract art is a lot of fun and yet quite challenging. Given that as an artist, I have the freedom and luxury to choose the colours, shapes and lines, it is important to have balance and harmony of colours, and shapes. The lights, darks and forms all must come together to create a harmonious painting.
I love the way the colours are juxtaposed and the wavering, shimmering reflections caused by the forms.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
