visionary art – nature art – personal transformation art
Sometimes what I create is inspired by Nature and a spirit connection with environment and wildlife. Other times what I create begins as a spark that pulses deep within, awakening my soul, so that I connect with and become a channel for something greater than myself, expressing it through a variety of media.
Unveiling Krishna 2020
The transformation of Krishna, from Blue Krishna to Unveiling Krishna. When I started painting Blue Krishna I had a certain vision in mind. As the painting unfolded, Krishna revealed shifts and transformations happening in our world. This is how painting happens for me. It is an intuitive process of communication from the soul, or spirit, reflecting subtle realities that I channel. A couple years later I painted over Blue Krishna, creating Red Lotuses. I sometimes transform a work of art, replacing a vision with a new vision and expression, expressing my own personal-symbolic transformations. After several years I decided to revive my Blue Krishna vision and connection. I sanded and scraped, removing as much of the top layer as I could, unveiling some of Krishna underneath. The eyes, face, crown, and hair partially emerged, giving me a foundation so that I could paint Krishna back in and give it new life; a more balanced feminine-masculine Being.
when all is said and done the things we experience called life become nutrients for the spirit of every new generation
