As I walk into the studio and view the painting I have started I become aware of the inner movement that wants to be expressed. I can feel its pulse creating a rhythm inside of me, it boarders on the edge of frantic. I recall the words of my teacher, Sri Gary Olsen- everything you need is inside. I go within and ask for help and guidance; help me express what moves within, let me express this Love I feel inside.
I play and explore. The painting transforms into bursts of energy, this is what I know as a possible way to express movement. I spend several hours painting curved lines, turning the canvas–creating layer upon layer. Each stroke is a commitment to participate with the Dance of creation. I sense ripples in water, their movement expanding beyond time and space very similar to the movement I feel. At the end of the day I know I am in process. Today is a stepping-stone.
