To Desire or not to..

Acrylic and oil pastels on canvas 24 by 48 inches

This is a scene from the story of Ramayan, the great Hindu epic. "Sita desired for the dazzling golden deer that showed up near their hermitage not knowing that it would become the root cause of all the trauma that was in store for her.She urged her husband Rama to get it for her"
I do understand and have experienced what Buddha stated, that desire is the cause for misery. But I want to as well believe in the following quote by Napolean Hill.
"Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything".

I am back after a break, though vacation didnt keep me away from my paints! These two are done from my trip to Hawaii recently. The rhythm, the balance, the harmony that existed around made everything so animate. The moving water set the place in motion!
