A couple of weeks ago I have been doing a little acrylic miniature:
Not very happy with the painting but at least one person liked it so I’ll let it be. When I was working on this I’ve accidently stumbled across a sad picture:
Two freshly shot pheasants. They looked so beautiful from close up… I know people who wish to execute anybody killing pheasants but at the same time eat their close relatives, chickens and turkeys every day. .. Which just shows how our attitude to animals (and sometime to humans) depends on pretty looks and “cuteness”. It shouldn’t be this way.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with eating animals: lots of people probably are better off with high animal protein diet as this is the food we originally evolved on. Obviously we should protect endangered species and avoid unnecessary cruelty to animals, especially the ones closest to us by intelligence. Being cruel or destroying the beauty of nature would eventually backfire. It will make us more cruel to humans too and guilty and depressed. Yet if medical science really needs to experiment with animals it should be allowed: only humans on this planet know how to heal.
I wish I had time to do an old fashioned still life with those pheasants. ..

There is a very nice folk art exhibition at the VAN Art Gallery (Shrewsbury Market). It probably will end up quite soon, maybe on 27th – I am not sure. There are some pictures. All came from the same region of Zimbabwe.
They inspired me to do a bird pebble and some Sketching

Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. And unselfishness is letting other people’s lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at creating around it an absolute uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognises infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it. It is not selfish to think for oneself. A man who does not think for himself does not think at all. It is grossly selfish to require of one’s neighbour that he should think in the same way, and hold the same opinions. Why should he? If he can think, he will probably think differently. If he cannot think, it is monstrous to require thought of any kind from him. A red rose is not selfish because it wants to be a red rose. It would be horribly selfish if it wanted all the other flowers in the garden to be both red and roses. – Oscar Wilde #carpet #Attingham #sneakers #shoes #flowers #floral #rose #red #blue #oriental #rug #pattern #linandara_abstract #linandara_stillife #ковер #кеды
