Seeing through Closed Eyes


Sketch Book. 2010
THERE ARE TIMES IN LIFE WHEN WE CAN SEE BETTER WITH OUR EYES CLOSED.
This is one of those times.
May you always dream in color,
Katelen

Yes, but who is doing the seeing ... the one closing her eyes, or the one looking at the one closing her eyes? Definitely an enigma here, complete with Mona Lisa smile! :-)

Annie said...

I love your painting and also I am touch with your mom's words, my father everyday will tell me stories when I was a little and how much I love to jump. lol

layers said...

yes, sometimes we do see more in our mind than with our eyes-- and that is definitely where are art should come from-- not from what we see but from what we think we see

Martha Lever said...

A beautiful thought and a beautiful painting. I love to close my eyes and imagine things the way I'd like them to be....everyone at peace and happy with life.

With eyes open we merely see but with eyes closed we feel what we've seen. Fantastic art and words.

Very nice sketch Katelen. I can feel the experience through the facial expression and the posture

Mary said...

Yes, it is Fiestaware! :)

Jos said...

What a lovely expression she has on her face. Whispers of bliss. Really I can almost see what she is seeing, or at least something nearly as good. xx Jos

Yes, dreaming with eyes closed: One of my favorite activities. That is where we can see the possibilities. Blessings to you and your dear Mom.

Very expressive face.
You're right,,,heartfelt things are much better viewed without vision.

It's true. Your image captures it beautifully. Reminds me of the time my girlfriends and I spent a summer in Hawaii. We were snapping pictures all over the place, but were stopped in our tracks, when a friend from the island pointed to his heart and said, "Why don't you just take a picture here?"
