Silence is the universal refuge, the sequel to all dull discourses and all foolish acts, a balm to our every chagrin, as welcome after satiety as after disappointment. ~Henry David Thoreau
This is a different color scheme for me, using more neutrals and earth tones (although I did throw a hint of blue and green in.) Very difficult to create a depiction of the absence of something as the negation of sound can only be understood in reference to the presence of it. I work in a school for very young children and am surrounded by a wall of sound throughout the day as you can imagine. I enjoy coming home each day and spending an hour or so in complete silence as I paint and prepare for my daily blog. It revives the spirit!
