from listening comes wisdom

I would like to show you another piece I completed in my "simple truth/simple reminders" series.  It is titled "From Listening Comes Wisdom".  Listening, really listening, is probably one of my most difficult challenges.  And you know what, I am not alone.  (that's why God gave us two ears and only one mouth!)  I always thought of myself as a good listener until I became more aware.  There is more to listening than just hearing words.  It's the feelings behind the words you hear that develops true listening.

  1. I love this painting and I also love what you had to say about listening. I am learning to be a better listener, which I am very thankful for. You are so right that it is so much more than just hearing words.

  2. so true! I often find myself thinking of the next thing I'm going to say instead of listening or I get reminded of something during listening that makes me think of something else and I start "thinking of that" while I appear to be listening. It's so hard to really give attention and "hear" what is being said. I will need this art for my wall! I like your watermarked name over your art too! And the fact that you are grouping "series"- that's a great idea. Keep it up!

  4. Such an inspirational post, Teresa. It gave me a lot of food for thought. It gave me the push I needed to try harder to be a good listener, which I know I'm not...And the artwork is amazing, like I said before, I love the way you did her teeth, as well as her hands, really beautiful!
