Although I love to paint lots of bright, bold cheerful paintings with vibrant colors, I also thrive on painting the juxtapose of soothing art. Painting is a spiritual connection for me. When I paint, I have to let go of thought and access what I call, “the greater creative channel”. I start by meditating, writing, drinking tea, researching ideas. … and then I enter my art studio.
There is a certain “giving up” of oneself in creating art. You let yourself go, and let go of control of the outcome and your initial idea, and succumb to what is happening right then and there as you create. It’s like a trust fall.
“Amateur art” is not art that is “less than”, it’s art where someone is still in the earlier part of learning, and/or hasn’t begun to let go and receive a greater expression that can be channelled through us.
From time to time I’m approached by health facilities for healing art. One of the greatest honors I’ve had is providing art for healthcare, because I know how much it helps the loved ones and the patients while they are scared or anxious.
Here are a few examples of paintings I’ve made that are healing…. I hope that you will find great calm in these.
If you are interested in purchasing a piece for your home, commission or for corporate art you can contact me here.
Take good care!
