The world today is so noisy. Between traffic and the techonologies we just can’t live without, we are constantly inundated with white noise. But there are still certain feelings of complete and utter peace that come upon us in the simplest of moments. It is these moments, in which we are free from the world, that artist Eric Zener captures in his paintings.
That feeling of floating ( literally ) and muffled splashes heard underwater.. like being suspended in time. Or doing the Deadman’s Float. One of my favorite ways to relax in the water, even while other folks are splashing around me. It feels like being in a bubble.
How about that suspended in time sensation during a high leap into the water? There is only you and the sky.. and the person holding your hand, if you’re lucky.
Zener’s collection of work also captures the most precious of respites– slumber. Oh sleep! How sweet it is to rest and dream and awake renewed.
Hmmm.. think it might be time for a little nap. Not sure why I’m so sleepy all of a sudden!😉 While I catch some z’s, why don’t you take a look at Eric Zener’s website? Lots of beautiful work to be found.
