loving each new creation

I have a confession…

I watch myself fall madly in love with each new artwork I create.

Even the ugly ducklings.

It’s always been this way.

In the moment, when pen and pencil or brush and paint, are doing their mindless abandoned thing… its pure joy tearing through my veins whilst the finished creation is delighted in and loved like a new-born child. Carefully placed where my gaze can intermittently check, re-check, and greet the new one.

It’s a curiosity because I’m not saying every piece of artwork I produce IS fantastic, however the experiencing is.

The conclusion I’ve come to is the creative expression springs forth from the Truth of who I am, the Love that we all are, and thus creates this wonderous mad alive loving experiencing.  🙂

Sahaja

‘Sahaja’ is a sanskrit word for ‘innate’ or ‘born with’.

A selection of recent works created with layers of acrylic paint,
poured onto white backgrounds.

Sahaja …
humbly borrowed from a beautiful language
quietly slipped into the title
lovingly pointing the viewer to look
from whence they came

Sahaja…
swirling inward to a watery rest
falling on the breast of unknown
always calling the wanderer home
if she will only listen

Sahaja…
your sound rolls through like distant thunder
parting my lips and heart to allow
the exhale of your tone and warning
guiding the lover home
