There is a God and He created the beauty that is this world
That is the undeniable truth.

Breathtaking is an understatement.

"The mirror mosaics reflect many fragments of the world around them, assembling a constructed identity, a life composed of memories, individually disjointed, but beautiful in their overall effect, held in balance by the act of composition. Monir’s compositions, while externally bound and limited, open inwardly to the infinite, underlining the timeless and infinite quality of Islamic geometric concepts."
"My heart, so precious, I won’t trade for a hundred thousand souls, yet your one smile takes it for free."
By Maggi Hambling, I have always had a proclivity for art made about or relating to water, the sea being the epitome of power and beauty, these paintings could not capture it more perfectly. You get a feeling of energy and power from just looking at them, the brush strokes and texture the water seems ready to wash right through the canvas and into the space they inhabit.
“The older I get I identify with the land which is being eroded, the sea is like time - you can do nothing about it. Death will come, the sea will come. It’s a metaphor for life.”
"This world is but a canvas to our imagination."
Henry David Thoreau (via kelseyopedia)
The final stages of my chest piece. I have through no forethought landed up with mostly bird tattoos. The bluebird on my left arm (Ross Hallam from Handstyle Custom Tattoos JHB, South Africa) which reminds me to be good to people, gotten after I wasnt good to someone, is my 21st bird tattoo. The Chest piece is done by Jan Munky Giebelmann from Golden Tiki in JHB, South Africa.
Both are banging artists, send them love
The epitome of great music. Brace yourselves.
