-Henri Matisse

  1. I dream of it too. It is such a difficult thing to master sometimes I think that true happiness is a balance or harmony between every part of your life: health, family, career. Thank you for the wonderful quote!
    Mel,thank you for your wonderful comment under my "Atelier" post. I put so much effor into creating it and it warms my heart to know read about your impression of it. Every word is a treasure to me. Hope to have you as my guest one day. :-)

  3. that is one of THE most incredible photographs i've seen in a long time. Yes, I want balance in my life right now. I feel like that statue sitting on the edge--edge of insanity! haha!

  4. I love Henri!!! can you believe those thieves stole one of his lovely paintings from that Paris museum?! so sad to think it might be stuffed in some sack right now....
    great quote. I found this one I thought you'd like: Yoga is the blossoming of human potential to fullness. Art of Living happy day to you.

  5. Yes, this is what I dream of as well.
    Happy Friday Mel.

  6. oh sweet melissa ...
    how you find these images that invoke such feeling simply stuns me ...
    remember the one you posted, oh maybe last fall ~ the painting of the women dancing on a rooftop? there was so much freedom and joie de la vie ... i swear i wanted to paint!
    now ... now with this statue which gives me the most serene feeling, i have this unbelievable urge to sculpt!
    but first i ought to give quiet thought to henri's words ...
    thank you, lovely you ...
    have a most delightful weekend!
