In what way does being in relationship with the vastness of sacred Love
— a Love that receives everything from life to death —
influence connection with myself, others & the spaces I roam?
As an artist, this is what I dwell upon when I create.
Art & word is my spiritual practice.
I come to deeply listen and relate to Divine Love.
I rarely have music on when I create.
Instead, I make room for stillness and solitude
so that I may be present to the process.
When I arrive to the blank page,
I get a little tingly with excitement.
My curiosity begins to bounce, “What or who will appear?”
I don't begin with a specific color palette or “end” in mind.
Rather, I view white space as a mystery to be unveiled.
The time comes to unfurl a line.
I attempt not to dominate the way this line reveals itself.
(This is tricky… and I’m often unable to do it!)
I carry on.
Then, there’s a dance, a conversation, a prayer that occurs
as I observe the shapes that have been revealed.
Slowly, a form appears with an invitation to commune.
I develop this playful presence and add color.
