Discover light within!

All our interior world is reality, and that, perhaps, more so than our apparent world. (Marc Chagall) 

I looked at her, tried to speak to her before letting her go and live on my blog page.

I tried to hear her voice. There was only silence. I could not understand why she materialized on my page if she was going to be wordless. 

I looked at her many more times. I saw her long, blue- purple, brown- black tresses.  I saw her big liquid eyes and asked her, “Who are you?”
Just a smile. 

“Are you happy?” I asked and immediately realized what I was doing! 

I was talking to my painting! 

Am I going nuts?

No, wait.

Here she is looking at me again, smiling. 

Ah, I got it now!

In her silence, she seemed to be speaking. 
Her smile conveyed peace.

Her eyes spoke of depth that required no words to enlighten me.
“Look within.” She whispered softly.

I smiled back.

 Continuing with my ink and watercolor paintings, I also created a bright, smiling teapot. 
Tea break anyone?

 Linking with my awesome friends on Paint Party Friday
Happy PPF to all of you! 
And, lots of happy creativity to all on Creative Every Day
