When I first laid my eyes on that painting, all I wanted to do was take a leap into the world inside it. I wanted to jump right into the black and white world that stood still in front of me. It was so unbelievably still and quiet. It’s impossible to find a place like that in the real world. Hence why it was framed in a canvas for the human eye to long for.
I wanted to sit on the edge that doesn’t curve in and gives into gravitational forces.
I wanted to walk under those lights that only shine in the darkness.
I wanted the wind that makes the leaves dance, to whistle into my ears.
I wanted to follow the logs in the river, till they escaped out of my vision.
I wanted to hold the time on the palm of my hands, and watch it sit still.
I wanted to leave the chaos behind me, and fly into the simplicity of that picture.
I wanted to escape reality.
Have a lovely weekend readers,
