Above & Below Series

INSPIRATION BEHIND THESE PAINTINGS…

This series is a contemplation and practice in mindfulness. I am interested in the positive effects stillness and meditation can have on our lives. Painting is one way I quiet my mind. When I am still, my rational, thinking mind steps aside and allows room for intuitive guidance.

I feel a deep connection to the beach, which is another sacred place I go to find clarity and peace. There is such tranquility in walking the shoreline, watching the seagulls and sandpipers go effortlessly about their day. They remind me to be present to the ease and flow of my own life. The ocean waves often align with my breath and I feel an indescribable sense of peace and connection, like when I am in my garden. Everything is in harmony and I am in tune with life, trusting that all is well.
