A quiet moment overlooking the bay, with music of our natural world as a backdrop, we can listen to the sunset glimmer across the water. The sky descends in expansive color, gentle waves percuss a rhythm.
Suspended in flight our vision is influenced by who we are and how we feel. Here nature distills down the essence of a meaningful life. We must go within ourselves to witness truth, and nature is always there to remind us… the warmth of the sand at midday, the horizon line reaching forever over the water, the shelter of pine trees- all transport us to a safe and breathtaking place.
A pathway to spiritual awakening requires an open heart. There are many ways to get there, and painting is one way for me- to enter my studio with nature as my inspiration, hands, pastel and paint as my tools, I can use color to depict emotion, line for rhythm and energy, and sweeping broad strokes to tell a story.
Reiki is another pathway, a healing energy connecting us to a deeper place. A peaceful colorful journey, a dreamlike experience that restores, relaxes and heals. Both painting and Reiki demand a dive within, an exploration of our core and search for universal truth. We can find deeper connection and a better understanding of ourselves when we explore these paths.
This collection is my journey to find, capture, and preserve that quiet unmistakable moment of truth.
