About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Singing sweet songs, of melodies pure and true

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm

‘Rise up this morning,
smile with the rising sun,
three little birds
sit by my doorstep,
singing sweet songs
of melodies pure and true,
this is my message to you.’

PS : I don't know what's wrong with Blogger's colours, but the image I uploaded is not as dark as this and the back-ground is totally white, no grey...?



  1. I know how frustrating that can be, when the website changes your colors... but the painting is so pretty, regardless! I love the simplicity of this composition, Maree, you really conveyed the delicacy of the little birds on their perch and the preciousness of all living things... Well done!

    1. Aaah, thanks ever so much for your lovely words Katherine, appreciate that! Maybe blogger puts a grey back-ground because the template's back-ground is white, but who knows? lol!
