“Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight. Wish I may wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight.”
How many of us have looked up and allowed a star to touch our dreams? Or maybe launch them? As children, we would look up and chant at the brightest early evening star, holding onto a sacred wish deep in our hearts.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
There wouldn’t be a sky full of stars if we were all meant to wish on the same one.
The stars call to all of us, not just the artistically gifted such as Vincent and Frances. They are there, day (you just can’t see them) and night, and they touch each and every one of us who live on this planet, uniting the world with a sense of wonder.
Imagine… If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.
They inspire us to live a better life, be a better person and to challenge ourselves to make a mark. With all that inspiration, they succeed in making us feel humble and very small.
I’ve loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
The power of stars is amazing. Just by looking at them, we are filled with a sense of awe. How many time in our life have we looked up and taken a deep breath, stopped what we were doing and breathed out, “Wow.” Some believe the stars have a healing power. I don’t know but I can say that one of my favourite things to do is sit and look out on a starry night and let my mind drift. It is so calming, it must be healthy for me!! 🙂
I have loved painting the stars for my latest book, Mother Nature’s Kiss. I was inspired by the circles in Vincent Van Gogh”s Starry Night, above. I wanted them to be loose and fun so I thought I’d share how I create a night sky.
While I am painting I listen to my favourite starry music:
My dreamy music takes me away and lets me create, feel relaxed and happy as I paint and play as I go.
This was just a fun post to share and say hi. I hope you are having a great day and I wish for you a beautiful night. Check out the stars!
