Weekly Challenge Results - "Simplicity"

Wow ... what a fun week I've had browsing through all the wonderful entries. I've been told that one of the most difficult things for an artist to accomplish is knowing when to stop. Complexity is easy ... but simplicity takes talent. The artists who participated in this week's challenge are talented indeed.

I encourage you to click on the pictures and read the stories behind the work ... the words are as wonderful as the art.

Thanks, everyone!













From Judy:

♫ Tis a gift to be simple. Tis a gift to be free.
Tis a gift to come down where we ought to be.
And when we find ourselves in the place that's right,
Twil be in the valley of love and delight.♪♪














































































































































Simplicity
Sings in Light
and Joy
Simplicity Creates Clarity and Focus
It is a powerful force that
Restores the Soul
it Lightens the Heart
Lessens Pain
Heals what is Broken
Clears the Path
Opens the Space
Carries only what is Divine
Lets go of All that Burdens
Heals and transforms
the rough edges of the dark
and makes them into smooth energies of light
*
Simplicity is a feather
Carrying only itself
Carrying the True Purpose it is intended for
and nothing else that does not belong to it.
IT knows it is boundless and limitless
in it's Natural State
and limited when attached
to what it does not truly need
*
Simplicity
adorns the Spirit with Only what it needs
It teaches you to remember ..that in this Space of Being
You can Only and always FLY
*
Simplicity gives you Wings
It cuts away the dark, the deadened parts
the jagged rocks
and brings you into the Arms of the Sky
where you are
Empowered and Free
and you could never ever be caged again.
*
When you Embrace Simplicity
You embrace your True Power to Be
all that you Are and all that you came here to Be.
There is nothing in the way to clutter you
your path, your mind or your heart
..you can finally see and become.
You are at One with your Truest Self
and the Peaceful Destiny that calls you.
