Ready to Hang
I paint to connect with the flow of life. I allow the liquid love to spill out of me and onto my canvas. The colors indicate my feelings and emotions as they illustrate my inner guidance. I do this through painting and creating expressions of my feelings. Each day as I approach the blank canvas, I sit and get quiet with my thoughts and emotions toward the process. My soul is trying to sing it’s song with the textures and effects. When I break the barrier of human thoughts my visual voice rings out with it’s own form of poetry, I feel deeply the hope for clarity and purity of spirit. I believe our thoughts form our reality. I create these thoughts as images on the canvas to keep me focused on my expansion and evolution. My paintings have a great deal to do with my spiritual evolution and how I create my paradise. Each painting is a different piece of the puzzle that makes up my emotional grounding that forms my reality.
When your imagination stirs up a storm
Turning every thought to fear
Your confidence and faith collapse
You find yourself lost in a fearful explosion of emotions
I want to reach you and pull you back to me
I’m trying to inspire you to find your way out of the tailwinds
Please grab my hand, please trust me
I will pull you back to our world of wonder and amazement
Your appreciation is just a thought away
Please hold on
This too shall pass!
I feel so much sorrow without you
I cannot loose my faith, the best is yet to come
Just then, I hear the whispers breaking through the gusts of chaos
Blowing and spinning, everything seems to be finding order
Your mind is organizing and finding it’s natural rhythm and rational
Your willingness is the factor in this Mindstorm
