Created in 2020.
As I sat for meditation, the portal of light opened, and I lost myself in the silence of my mind. Gently opening my eyes, I stepped into the painting—a scene—a moment in distant time of childhood innocence, walking the fields in the mist as the sun rose.
Being pulled deeper into the painting, I began my travel to a time where childhood laughter and play were all there was. A place where the paths moving through the fields and apple orchards led to the cool alcove of the waterfall feeding the river nurturing the land. A time of family gatherings and celebrations—
Walking through a pair of old wooden doors, stepping onto the smooth, cool adobe of the old woman’s cottage. Aroma of fresh baked bread –yard filed with wild colorful flowers, and the sound of water splashing against the rocks in the creek running behind her home.
Memory of a child who was loved, who played, who laughed and was cared for by all who were around.Each painting I create is a portal for me to tap into my memories and experiences—of this life or another I lived. My goal is to encourage the viewers’ imagination and transform the moment, as they view my art to one that is beyond this world—feeding their own imagination and creating their own stories.
