I see the most amazing things when I pay attention.
Went for a walk and the sun was bright. The path I take leads me into the forest and down to the stream. I've been this way many many times and yet this time the shadows displayed a marvelous deep abstraction and I was moved to stillness. Lucky for me I had my trusty phone to capture the moment and I smiled inward anticipating those shadows in a painting.
After that scene I just started spending less time in my thoughts and more time actually looking and appreciating my surroundings. Peaceful and lovely.
On my way out of the park I passed an adorable couple holding hands and I knew they needed to walk into my painting.
