beautiful art pages, as usual. I hope they aren't literal... does the blue/purple represent water? hope that doesn't sound lame... excuse the pun!let me know how you're doing!
Hi Kim, thanks for the assistance through the fires :)Thanks Bob, the images are acrylic paintings on gesso covered book pages.Thank you Cat. I try to do as you describe. There is a period of each day, however, during the morning hours, that my physical experience envelopes me. It is all, and all I can do is endure it. I was reflecting on that and the words reflected back at me in the day's newspaper headlines.Hi Patti, well not literal - I don't have flames shooting up all around me!! The blue is a lotus beginning it's blooming in the background. I painted it first, then the legs and feet, then the flames, overlaying each on top of the other. These represent, for me, that there is first the foundation of what truly is,then there is the physical form, then there is the physical experience. On a day like yesterday, the physical experience buries the truth of what is, but it's my job to remember that it is always there - that place of universal truth, connectedness with the greater oneness, release from the illusion of pain. I didn't experience that place yesterday, but in my heart I knew it was there.
Imaging a cool puddle-pond for you to dip your feet into ... Loving you xoxoxoxoxoxox
You draw feet just as beautifully as you draw hands.
oh, oh, oh... and in the midst, the lotus... ALways...xo
Sometimes I'm amazed at how clearly your art pages speak. They make me realize I've not often felt the kind of pain you seem to deal with on a daily basis.Feel well, Karin!

Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts!
Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who come alive.
Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
