Utopia ~ by David B. Redpath
(acrylic on canvas) Β© 2018-2022

“Man is born free, and
everywhere he is in chains.
Those who think themselves
the masters of others are indeed
greater slaves than they.”

“I prefer liberty with danger
than peace with slavery.”

“No man has any natural authority
over his fellow men.”

“Everything is good as it comes
from the hands of the Maker of
the world, but degenerates once
it gets into the hands of man.”

“I perceive God everywhere
in His works. I sense Him in me;
I see Him all around me.”

“Falsehood has an infinity
of combinations, but truth has
only one mode of being.”

“What wisdom can you find
greater than kindness?”

~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau

    1. Variety is the spicy
      creativity of life.

      “For sometimes
      when I am feeling
      as big as the land
      With the velvet hill
      in the small of my back
      And my hands
      are playing the sand
      And my feet are swimming
      in all of the waters
      All of the rivers are givers
      to the ocean
      According to plan,
      according to man.”
      ~Melanie, ‘Peace will Come’.

  1. Perfect!!!!!! Have a nice day !!!
    There is a place somewhere over the rainbow
    where peace and love lay together in a soft bed.
    Where kindness and kindred-ship
    are locked within each others arms.
    Where hate, jealousy and greed
    were banished forever a long times ago.
    Where there is no famine or disease
    and every soul knows only harmony and tranquillity
    throughout each coming day.
    A place they call Utopia.

    1. My pleasure, Katherine.
      And I do really appreciate
      your positive feedback.
      I’ve been to Tuscany, Spain,
      and Catalonia (long way from
      Australia). I presumed you are
      from Romania. Never been there
      but would like to go sometime.

  2. This is incredible. Absolutely stunning. I thought you were posting a famous work of art I’d never seen before, till I saw your signature on the bottom of the painting. The composition, colours, mood, it’s arresting and beautiful.

    1. Could well be, Drew.
      She didn’t reveal all to me.
      I was just the grateful recipient
      of her magnanimous imagery.
      The only thing Utopia said was,
      “Hurry up you fool, and paint me!”


    1. I don’t know what to say.
      You’ve floored me, Lia πŸ™ƒ πŸ•ΆοΈ
      in the nicest possible way πŸ’›
      But then πŸ€”
      Hillary did call me a
      a basket full of adorables
      At least
      I think that’s what she said 😎

    1. There does seem to be the worst
      kind of curse in action across each
      and every nation … like something
      is missing? Perhaps it’s time for
      some prayerful unity to hopefully
      store the best of God’s blessing?
