Take an imaginary journey of wandering off and discovering some delightful things on a beautiful spring day. This is how it was when I started this abstract painting. I put colours and textures and let my mind go with the flow of lines and colours. The next day the patterns and colours invited me to add more details. As I looked at the painting from a distance, I could see some lovely, vibrant shapes emerging. Oh, look, there's a flower. Hmmm, this shape looks like a rabbit. I think I see another one. And so, the flowers, leaves and colours emerged turning it into a painting of luscious beauty.
"The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless." Jean-Jacques Rousseau
This is a painting that takes you on an imaginary journey. I remember as a child, lying on grass and looking up at the clouds. I could see some creatures forming and disappearing. This is how it was with this painting.
I started putting colours and textures without any specific idea in mind. The fun part of creating an abstract painting is letting the patterns, shapes, and colours dictate the imagination.
I like to return to the painting after some time. As I added more colours and shapes - flowers, leaves, suddenly I saw a bunny rabbit like shape at the top, as if beckoning me to further define it. Then I saw another one facing it. I enhanced it with drawing and lo and behold, they looked like they were going somewhere into an imaginary landscape together.
This is a painting that invites you to go on a promenade. Look into the painting and see where it takes you. You might see more creatures. Be like a child and see where your imagination takes you.

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.
