Below you will find the most amazingly beautiful art form that I have never seen used before. It really draws you in and the results will blow your visual senses away while the flute will hypnotize your auditory senses. Actually both are mesmerizing. And I am not talking about the activity alone of working with the paints and water, I am speaking of the final results of the entire process. Do Enjoy the art.

Preceding the water art exhibition I added the magic of computer technology, the flowing of a stream in motion over rocks and boulders, working its way toward its infinite destination. After you, hopefully, find satisfaction from the art & wonderful Japanese Flute Music, and the streaming river or, if you prefer, stream, I introduce in a totally unrelated video, the most adorable wombat baby. She (I am assuming female—usually do) is a snuggly & sweet, loves her tummy rubbed, fuzzy baby animal. I stress baby b/c you would definitely not do this with an adult wombat. Enjoy the warmth that is exuded through the connection between baby animal and affectionate human. Enjoy all of what these awaken in your senses. And absorb what you will from the chosen quotations that end this post on love of water, art & animals. Namaste. 😎 jk the secret keeper ps. And, of course, a touch of Philip Glass — Tearing Herself Away (The Hours)

Painting on Water — Sound Japanese Flute Music


Douglas & Me: A Love Story

“Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.” ― Colette

“A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

“Morning: Slept.
Afternoon: Slept.
Evening: Ate grass.
Night: Ate grass. Decided grass is boring.
Scratched. Hard to reach the itchy bits.
Slept.”
― Jackie French, Diary of a Wombat

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.” ― Alice Walker

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” ― Anatole France

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” ― Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island

“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” ― Martin Buber

“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.” ― Anaïs Nin

“Holding this soft, small living creature in my lap this way, though, and seeing how it slept with complete trust in me, I felt a warm rush in my chest. I put my hand on the cat’s chest and felt his heart beating. The pulse was faint and fast, but his heart, like mine, was ticking off the time allotted to his small body with all the restless earnestness of my own.” ― Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.” ― Vincent van Gogh

“True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power. Mankind’s true moral test, its fundamental test (which is deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals.” ― Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

“You’re mind is working at its best when you’re being paranoid.
You explore every avenue and possibility of your situation
at high speed with total clarity.” ― Banksy, Banging Your Head Against a Brick Wall

“When animals express their feelings they pour out like water from a spout. Animals’ emotions are raw, unfiltered, and uncontrolled. Their joy is the purest and most contagious of joys and their grief the deepest and most devastating. Their passions bring us to our knees in delight and sorrow.” ― Marc Bekoff, The Emotional Lives of Animals: A Leading Scientist Explores Animal Joy, Sorrow, and Empathy – and Why They Matter

“Some things are hard to write about. After something happens to you, you go to write it down, and either you over dramatize it, or underplay it, exaggerate the wrong parts or ignore the important ones. At any rate, you never write it quite the way you want to.” ― Sylvia Plath

“Animals are born who they are, accept it, and that is that. They live with greater peace than people do.” ― Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

“It’s so hard to express yourself.’
I understand this.’
I want to express myself.’
The same is true for me.’
I’m looking for my voice.’
It’s in your mouth.’
I want to do something I’m not ashamed of.’
Something you are proud of, yes?’
Not even. I just don’t want to be ashamed.”
― Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

“We patronize the animals for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they are more finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other Nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time.”
― Henry Beston

“Inside of all of us there is the need and the desire to be heard, to have our innermost thoughts, feelings and desires expressed for others to hear, to see and to understand. We all want to matter to someone, to leave a mark. Writers just take those thoughts, feelings and desires and express them in such a way that the reader not only reads them but feels them as well.” ― Vicktor Alexander

“For centuries poets, some poets, have tried to give a voice to the animals, and readers, some readers, have felt empathy and sorrow. If animals did have voices, and they could speak with the tongues of angels–at the very least with the tongues of angels–they would be unable to save themselves from us. What good would language do? Their mysterious otherness has not saved them, nor have their beautiful songs and coats and skins and shells and eyes. We discover the remarkable intelligence of the whale, the wolf, the elephant–it does not save them, nor does our awareness of the complexity of their lives. Their strength, their skills, their swiftness, the beauty of their flights. It matters not, it seems, whether they are large or small, proud or shy, docile or fierce, wild or domesticated, whether they nurse their young or brood patiently on eggs. If they eat meat, we decry their viciousness; if they eat grasses and seeds, we dismiss them as weak. There is not one of them, not even the songbird who cannot, who does not, conflict with man and his perceived needs and desires. St. Francis converted the wolf of Gubbio to reason, but he performed this miracle only once and as miracles go, it didn’t seem to capture the public’s fancy. Humans don’t want animals to reason with them. It would be a disturbing, unnerving, diminishing experience; it would bring about all manner of awkwardness and guilt.” ― Joy Williams, Ill Nature

“My music is the spiritual expression of what I am — my faith, my knowledge, my being…When you begin to see the possibilities of music, you desire to do something really good for people, to help humanity free itself from its hangups…I want to speak to their souls.” ― John Coltrane

“Animals, like us, are living souls. They are not things. They are not objects. Neither are they human. Yet they mourn. They love. They dance. They suffer. They know the peaks and chasms of being.” ― Gary Kowalski, The Souls of Animals

“Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper.”
― Isaac Bashevis Singer

“A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is thereby a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.”
― Ansel Adams

    • Thank you John, When I started this post I thought it was going to basically be simple but somehow it grew. I try to send out positive energy into the world. It is in great need of it. You always make me feel good. I appreciate what you say so much. 🙂 jk

  2. Isn’t that fascinating, the painting on the water. Makes me want to try it. Worried that with all the cats & three kittens they would be in on it for sure & make a worse mess then I could. And I would make a mess. My first attempt at making a pie, when I was whipping the cream cheese, more splattered all over me and the everywhere then in the bowl. But I sure would like to do it. So beautiful, the results he created. Inspirational. Maybe someday. 🙂 jk
