|My Instagram #2015bestnine ...Instagram posts with the most likes|
A surprise to end the year! You may have seen these circulating on Instagram and Facebook. People have been posting their top nine instagram photos of 2015. I was curious about it so I did some research and found the website that calculates the instagram posts that have received the most likes. I have tried to be more active on Instagram this year so I had quite a few photos posted.
What a surprise when my top nine appeared in a photo collage. My top nine photos were my paintings. It was a revelation. I immediately noticed a theme. I had posted 196 photos...many were photos of my paintings. The paintings that received the most interest were all TREES!
I have been gravitating towards landscapes with trees. I had avoided them for many years. It is gratifying to know that the tree paintings are speaking to viewers. It is said that if you paint what you love it will show. I believe this to be true. In all of the nine paintings in the instagram collage I was moved and excited to paint the scene. I painted them with my heart. This seemingly silly little collage has reinforced the importance of painting our own personal truth.
As the New Year begins I wish you all a very Happy and healthy New Year filled with beauty and love. I wish for you to all discover and continue to paint what speaks loudest to you!
