Check out this large painting I had the pleasure to create for the Foyer in South Ridge Community Church (7 Pittstown Road, Clinton, NJ 08809) in celebration of their message series they have called "Reverberate" on Sunday Service from 9 to 10:45 p.m. now until December 3rd. Peace to you this week as we enter into the weekend- CHEERS!
Painting is a lot like praying, it's a form of meditation for me, so to speak. Choosing colors, pouring paint, mixing, dabbing my brush in water, wiping it down, placement, motion, deciding the position of strokes and pressure applied to with which suiting brush, blending etc-- that's all I'm really thinking about and I usually leave my work feeling more energized, productive, connected, and whole. I feel a sense of connection with my Self, with my Creator, with what is let out of me and the side of me that so strongly and deeply desires to give birth to an expression. It is beautiful when you allow The Spirit to work through you and the innate creative process that wishes to flow, which happens whilst taking a little courage to get oriented with, initially. Getting messy with the paint and with the colors of your emotions, with the shape of thoughts, strokes of decisions and being with your entire Self as you attempt to control a medium that is fluid, liquid and that moves in such a matter and such as life, how much do we really have control of, anyway? In the meantime, I will find mastery in what I can do in a medium that frees my spirit and takes me to a space internally where I am empowered and I am peaceful...at least for the moments of today. In any event, here is a detail shot of the finish product- titled, "Birth of The Reverberation." Stay tuned to see my piece in it's glory & entirety hanging in the church foyer. May peace be upon whoever experiences this piece and upon you today, also
Included my married initial/name into my monographic signature-- that I've been using to sign my artwork since I was 16 or so, is now slightly modified. Do you see the "D"?
