This is an imitation of Marc Chagall’s Magic Flute titled The Music of Eden.
The music of Eden. Can you hear it? Shhhh…Listen with your heart. Lean in. The eyes of your imagination illumine and you see a path before you, but the moment is soon disturbed as you see the festive brigade of creatures and angels emerging with Eden’s finest wine and dinner party atire. (Which wasn’t much for a garden company! wot wot!!!)
Go ahead don’t be shy, engage this mystic reality. Taste the color, hear the syllables of each foot print, where Eden begins and earth ends who knows, the boundary is blurring.
Here’s a question for you, If Adam (who the Hebrew stories tell us was made by God) was given a charge to extend the boundaries of the Garden. What art would he have created to bring the new world into an experience of paradise? What songs would he sing? What stories would he tell? What dances would he perform?
For the curious and childlike I invite you to dialogue with the Creator. Take a moment and see what Eden was like.
Let me know how it goes!
Note on art materials: I used watercolors to imitate Chagall’s acrylics, oils, and gouaches. I do this simple because of the ease of bringing watercolors around with me.
