For me making of art is life... its Spiritual. It's the rhythms, movement and dancing of my brush, the light and color in my oils, the feel and texture of the paint under my brush pushing against the canvas, and its the sound and taste of the precious moments that exist between myself and other humans and our ultimate connection to Spirit, to the Universe. I meditate daily and I pray daily. And sometimes when meditating I ‘find’ my paintings. Not always, but sometimes.
