Picture that. No Elves.

Could be pity maybe, but, in any case, hard to explain:

Limited this time in place, a traveling art exhibit by Piet Mondrian quite welcomed inside my lore. (© image)

To approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual.”

– Piet Mondrian

“Reality manifests itself as constant and objective – independent of us, but as changeable in space and time. Consequently, its reflection in us contains both properties. Mixed up in our mind, these properties are confused and we do not have a proper image of reality. ”
– Piet Mondrian

“In past times when one lived in contact with nature, abstraction was easy; it was done unconsciously. Now in our denaturalized age abstraction becomes an effort.”
– Piet Mondrian

Obviously, the dog, one with nature, is demonstrating that meditation leads to art…and rested mind.

While critics, sociologists, and philosophers adamantly state that Nature is completely oblivious and unconcerned about any human condition, sometimes it does seem like the environment is making an effort to cheer me up.

Noted and appreciated.

Elves, my tinsel!

You see it, right?

Shadows of reindeer peeking in the window!

    Commenting’s a pain with wifi and 30 second page loads. This is what passes for roughing it, these days! I found a star you’ll enjoy yesterday, shining in the middle of the proverbial Nowhere. Such fun!

    I love engaging with nature in this way. Full of surprises.

    Lucky you. I get so little direct sunlight in my house with two-story homes close on two sides, and a porch and covered deck on the other two sides. Sunlight is so medicinal!

    We get a lot of that sort of art here as well. 🙂

    I love noticing light and shadow, in nature and as it enters my house. Thank you for the lovely found art.

    I grew up with rainbows on the wall and still love them. I also like shadows. Your pictures are wonderful. Anyone out there counting flowers on the wall during this “stay at home” time?

    Love your imagination here, Karen. And who knows what Molly was dreaming, maybe speckled light shining down on a fat rabbit in a meadow. –Curt
