Nubes de Agua

Nubes de Agua

Layers small

Let your tears come.  Let them water your soul.

~Eileen Mayhew

The title of this piece is: Layers.  Sometimes a cloud forms out of little pieces of worries and concerns in our mind. This cloud grows and grows until it becomes too heavy to stay in the air. That’s when our cloud turns into rain. Little tears or big tears, they’re all important in the seasons of the soul. When we allow ourselves to cry we’re opening a little door for our pain to go away. This is what I have experienced personally. Fortunately, my sky is almost always clear, but when the big cloud forms I try not to be scared of it, I just let it be and think about what John Vance Cheney said:

“The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears”.


  1. Gorgeous painting and very profound quotes which makes an inspirational combination.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Wise word Elsita and great quote, thank you, xxx

  3. Tienes un alma muy antigua Elsita. Me encanta escuchar tu perspectiva de la vida.
    PS. ¡Y qué guapa te ves con el cabello lacio!

  4. Such a beautiful painting, and what truly fantastic perspective! I have a less poetic way when referring to tears (tears are like pee, when you gotta go, you gotta go, LOL.) I totally prefer your view of them though! 🙂

  5. Beautiful.

  6. Elsita, esto es demasiadisimamente hermoso! sos tan magica con las palabras como con la pintura!!! me encanto! es bello!

  7. You have the most inspirational blogs. I love your sense of colour and design and your fine drawing and painting that is charged with emotion.

  8. This is so true!!! I have a tendency to do this with little thongs that upset me and then WATCH OUT! A wrong turn can totally make me breakdown. ;0)

  9. Perfect words 🙂

  10. Wonderful. The painting, the quotes, the reflections…this is so inspiring! Whish I could see the world like this!

  11. Pues me parece bastante curioso lo que nos has contado por aqui!! Aunque la verdad, no me ha quedado muy claro el concepto.

  12. Beautiful, love the colors… not sure what Nubes is? I’m from San Diego and worked in restaurants for a long time so my Spanish is pretty good but a little rusty, de aqua I know is ‘of water’. I assume nubes is clouds?

  13. The article is very good, I like it very much.Here I learned a lot, then I will pay more attention to you.

  14. This is what I have knowledgeable individually. Luckily, my sky is almost always obvious, but when the big reasoning types I try not to be terrified of it, I just let it be and think about this.
