Inner Stillness


All true Artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.

She is fantastic - I very much like the collar. Her face is gorgeous, but the hair really is the best - what a stunning color!

Very interesting piece. I agree with the quote - no-mind. So true. I always called it painting intuitively, now I understand what that means. Happy PPF! :-)

Interesting thought there. I guess I do tap into something quiet inside, but I've never really thought about it before.

She looks very serene like she's definitely in touch with her core. Beautiful.
