New Original Watercolour Painting

Hi everyone, I just wanted to share my latest original painting with you all.  This one is called 'A Mediative State' and features an African American woman enjoying some time alone meditating on life:

It has been painted on Khadi paper which is handmade in India and has wonderful deckled edges as you should be able to see in the image above.

This piece is no. 9 in the Serenity, Joy Art Series and I've noticed that the meditation and spiritual themes seem to run through most of my work nowadays. I'm enjoying creating these pieces because they encourage me to stop, rest and take time out and I like the thought that maybe my work inspires others to do the same.

I guess in a way my pieces of artwork are messages to myself, whispering the lessons that I sometimes ignore and really shouldn't.
