Where gold and glory no longer matters

There is a kind of treasure - an enrichening of experience - which turns everyday stuff and moments into pure wonder. While painting, I sometimes come across little sparks of this treasure, and it makes the paintings come alive - it makes me come alive. At such moments I'm no longer a painter, but a wizard, or a receiver of true treasure. As far as I know, this sort of gold cannot be sold or given away. We all have to find it for ourselves. The painting below did it for me. I wonder if it may do the same for you? Did any of the magic stick to the canvas? Can colors carry it?
