I have been asked by the Multiple Sclerosis Trust, to produce a small artwork 4'' x 4'' on paper, to be sold at the Secret Art Show along with other artists work, in September. Obviously all proceeds go to supporting the MST. If you are interested in purchasing any of the may artworks available, you can find more info on their website.  This unique exhibition gives visitors the chance to buy a mini-masterpiece for only £45. All pieces of artwork are the same size, fitting into a CD case and are sold anonymously in aid of the MS Trust. The art is signed on the back and only at the end of the show, do people find out whose art they have bought.   Obviously if people looked here first it wouldn't be very secret !!! LOL

This is a  beautiful meditation that I breathed whilst painting the little pictures above, in memory of my Father who died last week. A very special man.

Breathe and you know you are alive.
Breathe and you know that all is helping you.
Breathe and you know that you are the world.
Breathe and you know that the flower is breathing too.
Breathe for yourself and you breathe for the world.
Breathe in compassion and breathe out joy.
Breathe and be one with the air that you breathe.
Breathe and be one with the river that flows.
Breathe and be one with the earth that you tread.
Breathe and be one with the fire that glows.
Breathe and you break the thought of birth and death.
Breathe and you see that impermanence is life.
Breathe for your joy to be steady and calm.
Breathe for your sorrow to flow away.
Breathe to renew every cell in your blood.
Breathe to renew the depths of consciousness.
Breathe and you dwell in the here and now.
Breathe and all you touch is new and real.
