Art inspired and created from the heart




A fun painting I created one afternoon a couple of days ago. It was such a beautiful day and my heart screamed to be in the outdoors, I headed to the park and turned around grabbing my brushes and some acrylic paint before I got too far.

I had originally thought I would paint a scene of something at the park, however as I sat in silence just being aware I was inspired by a painting I had seen a few days earlier while looking for a gallery to exhibit some of my art. A very beautiful piece by Van Gogh  titled “Sunflowers on Gold” as I sat on the bank of the pond remembering the warm feeling the painting gave my heart as I stood in the snow feeling it’s glow.

It is an acrylic painting a medium I am starting to learn how to use and have some fun with. I chose to start using it more so I can create more while enjoying nature and creating outdoors. I love to paint outdoors it is very satisfying and inspirational to breathe the fresh air and listen to the birds as the brush flows on the canvas leaving it’s beauty and color behind.


I hope you enjoyed the painting and the visit perhaps even leaving with a smile. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you choose to visit again.. 🙂 Joe
