Mixed Media Abstract by Noosa artist Chris Hobel
Mixed Media abstract 8x8"
mounted on box canvas ,created on paper using acrylic, pencil pastels,lots of layering
It looks a bit whitish on the top right side due to shine from the varnish.
The cut this section from a larger painting. I particularly like the colour combination
I saved this thoughtful passage recently and had to pass it on
"To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion,
to be worthy, not respectable,
and wealthy, not rich;
to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly,
to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart,
to bear all cheerfully,
to all bravely await occasions,
In a word, to let the spiritual unbidden and unconscious
grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony."
William Henry Channing
