Meike Boynton, who just recently won our “Zen” challenge, had the opportunity to pick a piece of art from Touched By Fire RedBubble Group to be featured and talk about how/why it touched her. She chose this lovely piece by Linaji, which also placed in the top 10 of the same challenge.
Mieke says, “As a child, I spent a lot of time in the Australian Bush, and the place I most loved to go was at the back of our property on land that was State Forest. After following a meandering path alongside a trickling clear-water creek, climbing over moss-laden logs and under umbrella-like tree-ferns, you would end up at a cool, dark place, where water emerged (literally) from a small, rocky cliff-face and tumbled down into a pool below, where little-leafed plants floated on the surface of the water and birds flitted in and out of the shadows. It was always a place where I could become one with the natural world around me. Linaji’s image vividly brings to mind the sounds, smells, sights and feelings of those visits. It is a deliciously evocative image.”
Delicious indeed. Thanks to Mieke for contributing this wonderful feature to our blog, and thanks to Lina for sharing such a beautiful and inspiring piece.
