Abstract mixed medium painting; acrylic and watercolor on paper with inked Chinese character for “sky”. Original 8. 5 × 11″.
Created after a particularly present and powerful yoga practice from which I promptly began to menstruate. At the moment it felt to me the most profound painting I had so far produced.
I value the brief process of producing small paintings and collages. They are finely “Now”. It’s complete. I’m fulfilled. I move on.
It felt incredible to create directly from my own dynamic moment; blood and opened cellular energy; the feeling that my attained balance and cleanly spinning connection was becoming unhinged by the heat and hunger of the incoming biological process.
My first true landscape as a painter, an inner landscape composed of ancient alchemical symbols, which came without intention. It evolved just from the physical act of my hand moving the brush, the inner events, the intense energy generated.
