As the world continues to grapple with the pandemic, our lives have changed dramatically. This seismic shift may have caused dismay but albeit these, creativity has remained alive and vivacious. As we brave this gloomy tinge of reality, a burst of joyful colors can always paint the world brighter. Art is a vessel of consciousness, passion and inspiration. Painting offers a gateway of peace, of perseverance, of hope. Similarly, despite the sharp vicissitudes life has to offer, a play of hues exudes delight and consolation. A weave of sprightly shades and eloquent lineation delivers cheer in its sequential stripes. Life may present its series of dark stains but these tinges of vivid brights bring optimism. Future sorrows may befall us, but these pulsing pigments of the heart and the dazzling tones of the spirit pave way for a more generous future. This is life. This is art. A medley of shades. A color spangle. An explosion of hues. Celebrate life in vibrance. The world is as beautiful as you see it; and only on how we portray it, makes everyone around happy.
