Eyes to See

On my way home a quote came to mind.  Something about having eyes to see, ears to hear, hands to touch, a heart to feel and a mind to think.  Then a mouth to give voice to your experiences.

Now that I am at home I cannot find the quote. I have a feeling it is probably a religious quote of some sort.  While doing a quick search I found another quote that I really like and think about a few times a week.  Maybe not in the exact words, but pretty darn close.

“Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty if only we have eyes to see them.” 

~John Ruskin

I like this quote much better.

Every day, when I start to take things for granted, I go for a walk and see the awesome pictures nature is painting.  The walk puts my mind in a better place and I can continue on with my day.  When things get rough, I know I can go outside and see a new painting, a new wonder.

Today I drew “eyes to see.”  I have three variations.  I like the purple ones, but the gradient ones are all dark and broody, which is interesting.  Enjoy.

“Eyes to see” with a bit of a gradient on top. I think it makes the eyes a bit broody.

“Eyes to see” no gradient, I only adjusted the black/white to remove the weird lighting that happens with cellphone pictures
