Cheer up..Your last mistake is your best teacher.. by touchofthesoul Cheer up..Your last mistake is your best teacher.. by touchofthesoul
Oil on canvas... 5 hours'painting

A scene from Thira(Santorini), my favourite Greek island which I am going to visit on Saturday, for a few days. Thus, this painting will be donated, with much love,  to Margherita and Spyros who will put me up in Santorini for my short holidays there :heart:

"Cheer up...Your last mistake is your best teacher..." This is what my grandmother used to tell me all the time..How true this is!! We accuse ourselves of making mistakes but we tend to forget that mistakes teach us how to grow mature and responsible people as long as we have our eyes, our heart and our mind  open to realize that...

Well I'm always a sucker of outdoor landscapes along with cityscapes which all the buildings are made of clay, stone, and brick.

Three main elements: the window, the flowers, and the vase (in foreground). The three components for a new life! And the title transmits a strong message! :)

I really love this scenic painting which has been done so amazingly, what I like best about you art is that you title them in such a way which makes it both beautiful and philosophical in the sense that it is always a wise title..I hope you get what I am trying to say-not very good at it!!:heart:

When I look at your work I wish I could have your perception of volume and brilliant colours.  I could never master that.   Your work is stunning!

5 hours?, you make it look so easy!, this landscape really seems to be more complex on working process than the little time you used to paint it... very well done, and on this one, what I like the most are the shadows, they look really great (but of course, everything else looks great).

Yep, there's nothing like the wisdom of a Grandma, and you're right, sometimes we are blind about how  to take out the best of our mistakes, and how that's what makes us grow up, and make us to take better decisions in life (a lot of people never get mature on their entire life), and the key is what you just said, to keep wide open our eyes, heart and mind... gorgeous thoughts you share with us, thanks for that. :heart:

Thank you again for your encouraging comment!! I believe that we all make mistakes..There is nothing wring with that...The bad thing is not to try to learn from them because all  mistakes have something to give us...as long as we find it....Thank you for being so supportive....!!!!

No need to thank me, and thanks to you, for me it's an honor. :D

Again you're right, make mistakes it's normal, but to take the lessons from them is something just for those that try to find them...

My whole pleasure. :heart:

What a wise and wonderful grandmother you have!! You are so blessed to live among such heavenly beauty my friend.  And your art is stunning, I can look at it for hours, and drift into them and can feel the  moisture from the sea, smell the beautiful salt air and the warmth of the sun!!! Thank you for bringing me to your part of the world.
