The Beach :: La plage

Comedian Jim Carrey describes the moment he gave a name to his life’s calling.
“The purpose of my life had always been to free people from concern.”
Then at the age of 50, he started painting and he found a second purpose in his life.
“The purpose of art,” he wrote in his artist statement, is to bring people into presence.”
— The Painter’s Keys

I have finally settled down into the daily routine of life, and I am full of energy to paint, and reflect and just do what I have to do. I love both of Jim Carrey’s quotes, and if you sometimes ponder on the meaning of art in your life, visit the The Painter’s Keys website as it is really worth it. These wonderful palapas shelter us from the torrid sun and permit us to idle on the beach, without a care in the world -)

Étant revenue de notre petit séjour de repos avec plein d’énergie pour peindre et réfléchir afin de faire ce que j’ai à faire, et savoir où je m’en vais, les citations de Jim Carrey m’étonnent et me ravissent. Si jamais vous vous demandez ce que l’art peut vous apporter dans votre vie, le site The Painter’s Keys vaut vraiment la peine. Ces merveilleux palapas nous ont abrité du soleil torride et nous ont permis de nous reposer sur la plage, sans un souci au monde -)
