I am very close to religion and nature. I feel that both of them are really interconnected. Both give me a sense of hope in days of distress. Whenever I feel upset or anxious, I pray or go out for a walk in the park to observe the trees, birds and lake. These things really help me feel lighter, thus my upset/anxious mood gets a lot better.
I recently spotted a Peacock in the park and managed to save one of its feathers. It was the most beautiful feather I had seen, and it immediately lifted my creative spirits. I wanted to run home that very moment and capture it into my art book in my own imaginative ways.
I also knew that in Hinduism, the peacock feather is associated with Saraswati, a deity representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion, and knowledge. These are the qualities that I would want to acquire to become a better version of myself, and I know my peacock feather artwork will remind me to work toward these things.
