The painting “Culture Shock”

The painting “Culture Shock”

This image for me represents a moment of spiritual expansion….in the arrival of a shock (lightning) and the inner Gift offered therein. A prayer, a true profound beseeching, ( in this case a dramatic scream ), actually contains the help at the very moment of its inception, ( the rainbow). The figure in repose has her face (representing  ego ) veiled, only her third eye (awakened dimension ) is opened, indicating pure receptivity. That eye connects to the eye of the screaming figure, also a part of her, who has reached a point of no return.  In that magical moment something  transforms…as lightning burns away something un-true, and another layer of Truth is Seen. Its understanding is unveiled  in the mirror of reality experienced as it proceeds from this moment. New, free, without reference to the old, not defined by external events. If allowed.    Share on...

Disarmament

Disarmament

This painting was painted many years ago….but the image is one that to me stands on it’s own merit, in representing the state of mind where we finally give up “arms”, and multi-faceted inner resistance….and truly surrender to the most natural of unfold-ments. The ego ( the mask, false identity ), who  runs our life from the dark labyrinths of the unconscious, is thus rendered powerless, layer by layer, by the Light of Truth that is now invited and allowed.      Share on...

Truth

It is a blessing to be gifted with the degree of inner devastation/disillusionment that brings one to the point where facing “truth” becomes deeply personal. When the fear of not facing it becomes greater than the fear of facing it.  Share on...

Angelic Tear

Angelic Tear

OK….this is my first attempt to put a new painting into my blog….and to talk a bit about it. Angelic Tear…………30″ x 37″ acrylic on canvas This painting started out as a mandala for a sacred idealistic vision, a diamond crystal, tree of life, a dream of perfect union in Oneness. But it finished as another statement altogether. As i was painting, i was struck with the intervention of what felt to me like an Angelic Force, and it inspired an actual physical vertical cut from the top to halfway through the canvas.  I was shocked at the living quality this painting had taken on. This Force was speaking to me through my painting! The painting continued to morph into new visions brought about by the tear, and the tear ( interesting that they are spelled the same way ), like a living hologram, into the finished one i have included here. A Gift to me in my quest for Truth…..and it keeps speaking to me even now. ( click images to see enlargements )  Share on...
