Greens and Pink

"If people want to make war, they should make a color war, 
and paint each others' cities up in the night in pinks and greens."
- Yoko Ono

Isn't that a wonderful quote!!!

The colour prompt for this week's SOC challenge is:

1 Green + 1 Green + 1 Pink

It's been a lovely and colourful journey and there's only one more week to go for the SOC to come to an end this season! :)

GreensandPink-HuesnShades

Greens and Pink
Acrylic inks - Brilliant Green, Apple Green and Mix of White and Red
Canson Aquarelle, 300gsm

Flowing drifting greens
Sways and stirs
Balancing the pink blooms,
Divine creations…
That adorn the Lotus Feet!

Aren't we just like these blossoms!? Offerings to God from God and yet we don't really realize Him as we ought to! It's perhaps those instances in life when one feels how small one is when facing galactic situations that one really realizes how humble and helpless one can be! I am not facing any such problems (to friends who go concerned! :) ) but I am speaking in general terms. This discussion comes up several times when I meet some of my friends...so just jotting down my thoughts here for my blogger friends to ponder. :)

It's from a picture I came across in Google and I made a version of mine here! I do store beautiful and amazing pictures, in a folder, so that it could inspire me as and when I want! I think almost all of us, artists', do that.

Linking it the post to SOC and PPF :)
