I shut my eyes to see.

Like Paul Gauguin says, sometimes, "I shut my eyes in order to see."
The colors that I then visualize blossom as effusively as these flowers on my trees...




or, materialize, as bold as this face that reflects red, the color of passion,

 
or even, meditative like this...


Whatever be it that comes from my imagination, it is the moment of infinity for me. No concern regarding the rules of art that people who have learned art formally apply to their work ever bothers me at this moment.
It is pure joy.
My art and me.

Wishing my readers a very happy weekend and lots of art to feast their eyes on at PPF, Creative Every Day, Art Journal Every Day, Sunday Sketches.
