another stage in morphing

another stage in morphing

4. Here the painting is as of now, as it develops, colors flow in. I must say that i don’t know where this is going, but i have said that before. This way of creating art is more spontaneous and totally new to me…a break from my usual very finished more realistic styles and idealistic visions…and symbolism. New territory. So i will leave it at that for now.  Share on...

morphing movement

morphing movement

1. OK…Here is the first installment of what happens to the white emptiness…i just started flinging paint, lots of movement…and no thought …felt like dancing…and it had a power to it, very free and unrestricted….       2. On it goes, just playing….and a body of water appears…or maybe glass, or mirror??…       3. And the water/mirror reflects the wildness into graceful waves…and now i am excited to go and play in those waves with color and texture…and watch as this scene of movement becomes more manifest…. I like how there are changes in form and reflections in the textures of movement….but i don’t want to start putting too many words or ideas on it yet, because i don’t know where it is headed. I enjoy feeling acutely awake and empty as i allow this image to morph into being, giving myself to the experience. I can feel more colors wanting to come in, now….. Light spatterings and smearings, and flow….and i am a tool for its becoming…simply what it is. This feels so delightfully spontaneous, mindless and meaningless…a new area for me to explore in my art…i simply allow…without judgement…with feeling…not attached to where it goes. I also endeavor to develop this same quality in my life’s flow. Learning to get out of the way…      Share on...

The Blank White Canvas…+Allow

It has been over a month since i published my finished “Fertilization”. That painting took a further depth when my friend Karima used it extensively in the stunning videos of the final chapters of her Epic multimedia/multi-dimensional adventure: “The Colored Dream Series” and on to “The Two”….which just reached an inspiring and expansive end in chapter 13 of “the Two”. I highly recommend the entire series, …her blog is:   Karimahoisan.wordpress.com    ….You will be deeply touched  on many levels if you open to the experience…it is that amazing. And right now i face a charged awake moment.   The Unknown. I am standing in front of an empty white prepared canvas….open. This experience has always fascinated and intimidated me. All potentials are possible. Anything or nothing and everything in between. It is like facing unformed Reality from a pure awakeness….then going in and creating something in/with it…something unique. An act of creating within what is simply a pure undefined and non dual Force.  So? Why, then? What can i create that is more perfect than That?? For what purpose? Mind doesn’t have a clue, and will engage me in struggles if it can. But…the mind is not the tool to walk through this door, it can only repeat itself from learned data from the past. The True answer is>> beyond it.  In the hands of this Force beyond mind, the mind then becomes a highly useful multi-functional, creativity tool…but no longer the master controller, as before.  I am learning this on my Path, as i learn to Surrender. So as i face this unformed universe in stretched canvas…i let go...
