Illustration Friday - Instinct



Solomon was often asked about his success as a fisherman. Invariably his reply was enigmatic. “Just instinct,” he'd say with a wry smile.

"Instinct" is the most frequent path I've taken with my life.
Some success, some not so. And NO regrets either way.
Tessa, the picture of the fisherman shows contentment...and we all want that, I think..
Have a great weekend!

Uncommonly Beautiful as always my friend,

Your instinct is love,

I feel it, I honour it, I bow my head in reverence before it,

With love to you, M

I LOVE the blue against the yellow. So electrifying. Lovely, energetic painting. Solomon is too humble. :)

Tessa,
thank you for you lovely comment on my blog. i am still going through your blog, but i thought i'd pause for a moment and say hello back. there is so much to ponder and so much to see here.

i love the vibrancy of your pictures. have you seen the work of chris ofili? especially his portraits? your work has a similar spirit.
what a full and interesting life you lead!
