might/the mighty heart

Your vision will become clear only when you look into
your heart.
Who looks outside dreams.
Who looks inside awakens.
Carl Jung

It's art work inside art work. Great job with the colors and the focal point. The heart just pulls you in. Nicely done!

Mighty painting! Love it! Luscious color and design and everything else. The quote is perfect too! (Though mighty challenging to adhere to - at least sometimes).

Wow, I love that quote, and your illustration really socks it to me. It's all kind of pertinent to my life right now, so thanks.
Thank you also for your continued encouragement and support of my drawing! Sometimes I think you're the only one who truly appreciates my sense of humour!!

oh both are beautiful - your painting and carl jung's phrase....thank you for sharing them. Also loved your invention post! I love the colours and the idea :)

Look what happens when I take a break... all sorts of cool stuff. Really like the reflection and the lighting in this one. Jung's words are good, too.

You've got a couple of cool invention pieces... I used to wear 501 button-up jeans, but for the reason illustrated, I've gone to zippered Dickies... relaxed fit.

The Thanksgiving piece reminded me of how my extended family always goes in cognito for our annual dinners, too... hiding from each other (no turkey... at least not feathered).

Wonderful viewing, all!

You can really tap into depth - artistically and emotionally. Very well done! Nice to see Jung catching on more as Freud slips back.
