Yesterday while I was painting all the mundane trivialities of daily life that have been threatening to swamp me, all started to fall away, like drops of water drying in the sun. The power and force of what starts to well up inside me as I paint always amazes me! Energy enters through my feet and surges through my body, exploding onto the canvas. My brain stops chattering and it feels as though my whole body is entering and breathing into the painting...I take a "little trip" and return at the end completely nourished and energized and clear about who I am and what I was meant to do in this lifetime! I LOVE painting the EARTH! When I am engaged in these earth paintings there is nothing I would rather be doing, I am completely and fully present in the moment.
