Tomorrow Begins with Today
Original oil on canvas 36" x 48" x 1.5"
This painting was inspired with eyes wide open as I drove home. The Winter sunlight was rhythmically flashing through the trees across the highway. Creating almost a melody of light and dark. As I came to a stop I captured the inspirational moment with my camera and used it create this work. The title is still relevant today.
Throughout the process of creating this painting, I kept thinking about how our actions create our now. What we see, what we do, how we think, what we say, what we read, what we eat..... all of this and more creates our life tomorrow. All in today. All in the Now. If we can grasp this concept, it grounds us in the accountability of our lives. While also makes each moment more textural and more alive.
I recently read a great book titled the Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle sometime after this painting was made and the words ring so true to what I was already experiencing.
This book has stayed with me greatly and expanded my urgent belief in how important the choices we make are in every moment of our lives. This painting is a symbol of that thought in action. And even now after this painting was created I think back to all the good that has come out of it so far.
What choices will you make today that will be your tomorrow?
"If we fill today, right now with gratitude..our tomorrow will be brighter because of it."
