Love Inspires Love
Original Painting by Natasha Reilly, 2013
As I sat with this painting, I had a strong feeling that it had something to do with love but I wasn’t sure what. Then while listening to a talk yesterday I was struck with the image of the heart and people dancing or celebrating. I was also struck by the idea that people should “do what they love” – an idea I firmly which I believe – but I took it one step further in thinking that they should do what they love with love. When you are sharing yourself and the things that move your soul with another, love is transferred. Like confetti it falls down upon everyone around you.
I’m not sure that this painting conveys my thoughts or feelings adequately but it has inspired another work. Love has been transferred.
Love inspires love,
