French Fields

French Fields
6 x8 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Day 4 of the 30 in 30 challenge. This is a small study from a scene in France. Loved the  color harmony of the bright yellow wild flowers and the lavender-colored lilacs.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” This is one of my favorite quotes by Howard Thurman.   

And on the subject of being fully alive, I wanted to share a new website developed by a friend of mine. It's a not for profit initiative that is out to expand people's experience of being fully alive each and every day.  It encourages expanding participation, joy and gratitude and making the most of each and every day.  It's a wonderful resource for inspiration and information on the myriad of ways- physical, mental, spiritual and the arts -to enliven and enrich your life.
