Be Where Your Feet Are
GWS is printing Be Where Your Feet Are as a canvas limited edition. I'm excited. I want it hanging in my house. The original will be at our show, Works on Paper at the Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Gallery in Seymour, Connecticut next month.
To be where my feet are is something I remind myself often. My mind tends to drift toward the future, sometimes planning or worrying about what lies ahead, missing the present. Being present is where life is the most rich and colorful. I've even found myself consciously feeling the soles of my feet on the ground to get myself there.
I really like the way the images on the vintage wallpaper enriched the idea. The hunters in the background could be a distraction but the figure stands with her feet on the ground, amongst the most beautiful flowers.
