It was lovely to have had the opportunity to meet up again with Princess Kezang Wangchuck and her husband Palden Thinley of Bhutan but this time here in New York City at the Plaza to discuss future Gross National Happiness projects and collaborations between The Mountain Kingdom and the USA. How auspicious to have had this opportunity with this impressive couple, just as the the solar eclipse was at its zenith. It is a privilege to serve as an ambassador for @grossnationalhappiness along side my colleague kimchi Moyer.. I sense great things to emerge... #gnh #gnhcentre #plazahotel #bhutan #bhutanroyalfamily #paradigmshift #UN #newyork #georgehlewis #kezangwangchuck #paldenthinley #gnhcenter #britishartist

My latest watercolor from the children's book I am co-writing with my friend @adlubow - here the young boy, Arthur has a magical carefree moment swinging over the Nile where his Bunny looks on protectively. This story is about a child's ability to maintain his wonder and delight in a world where the pressures upon him to conform to adult strictures can be overwhelming. It is a book full of magic; after all magic is the science of tomorrow. #childrensbook #childrensbookillustration #child #picturebook #river #nile #pyramids #egypt #swing #bunbun #arthurandbunbun #magic #carefree #storytime #story #picturebooks #art #arthur #youngboy #innocence #freedom #river #timetravel #soulmate #bunny #soulsjourney

Sitting at one of my favorite spots in the Catskills, a secluded section of the river near my home; I am reminded that the earth isn't given to us by our parents but rather it is loaned to us by our children. #inspiration #innature #britishartist #artist #georgelewis #georgehlewis #river #newyork #upstatenewyork #upstate #catskills #surroundedbybeauty #surroundedbynature #selfportrait

Here I am, outside my studio upstate, with my latest ocean painting which has taken almost two months to complete; but is actually the culmination of two years of studying and painting water: A meditation on the emotional body and the power of water to heal.

With my friend Kader Sevinc, member of the European Parliament who attended my talk on "Water and Consciousness' for Nexus Global Summit at NYU, 295 Lafayette, Manhattan. It was a pleasure to share with the group some of my thoughts on water and it's importance both economically, politically, environmentally and most of all spiritually as we move more into 21st century.

Happy to share my thoughts on "Gross National Happiness" with Claudia Welss and kimchi Moyer and this new paradigm of the arts and sciences working more closely together at the Nexus Global summit this year.

Just arrived at the UN for @thenexussummit where I will be speaking with Claudia Welss and Kimchi Moyer on Gross National Happiness and the paradigm shift that will need to occur in this next stage of human civilization. Remember the magic of today is the science of tomorrow. #nexus #britishartist #gnh #earth #nexusglobal #un #unitednations #paradigmshift #newyork #newyorkcity #gnhcenter #grossnationalhappiness #wearenexus

Here is my finished painting of the rising full moon over the Hamptons. Just love painting and capturing light on the water. (42x42 inches acrylic in canvas). Excited to be working with #oceana raising awareness for our endangered and yet beloved oceans. I am still showing a collection of water paintings at the Puck Building at NYU, Manhattan until end of August for those of you interested in seeing the collection. #moon #moonrise #clouds #natureart #longisland #hamptons #easthampton #magic #painting #waterpainting #savewater #savetheocean #fullmoon #artist #georgelewis #georgehlewis #britishartist #oceanart #reflection #inspiration

Being back in my studio in the Catskills has really helped me to relax and recenter. Though I am surrounded by the lush green mountains of upstate my heart always brings me back to the ocean. Here I am putting the finishing touches to a painting I have been painting for over two months, inspired from a trip to the Hamptons, where I experienced an amazing full moon along that special coastline of Long Island, New York. I am looking forward to working with @oceana in the autumn raising awareness for our beloved and yet endangered seas. #painting #arttherapy #oceanart #oceana #georgehlewis #georgelewis #upstate #inspiration #painting #waterpainting #sea #reflection #seascape #moonlight #paintingoftheday #selfie #moonrise #moon #nightscene #lunar #britishartist #natureart #magic #clouds

Here I am starting on a new wood sculpture at my studio upstate : inspired by my daughter's fascination with snakes, I am carving its image on a piece of local wood. I am becoming more intrigued by the Totem Symbolism of Native American culture as I learn more. Furthermore being interested in Light Healing, the snake is an excellent symbol because it moves along the ground, symbolizing its connection to the Earth and its most primal energy and represents the force of creation itself. I have always been scared of snakes so I am finding this whole process quite cathartic as this helps ground my creative fire energy. #woodcarving #sculpture #britishartist #georgehlewis #georgelewis #snake #snaketotem #light #grounding #artwork #arttherapy #earth #taurus

T'was a beautiful full moon last night as viewed from my porch. A magical moment and scene over the Catskills Mountain. A full moon represents a rushing in of emotional energy and a greater need for reflection. #fullmoon #fullmoonparty #upstate #starrynight #upstatenewyork #catskills #moonlight #moonshine #bestview #lunar #reflection #tannersville #photograph #clouds #britishartist #georgelewis #georgehlewis
