‘Lost in the Wilderness’
The canvas is now positioned and large drop sheets drape themselves everywhere like ancient roman spectators, preparing to view an expressive extravaganza. Five…four…three…two…one… last deep breath to clear the mind and allow the pure creative energy to flow through from the universe. I stare at the crisp new canvas. It stares back.
BAM, SPLAT BAM, BAM!! Emotions ripped through me as fast as my arm can fly! Chunks of oily angst, now overwhelming, hit the canvas at breakneck speed then slither, spent, to their resting place. The scene is organic, the moment pure and the mind clear, the feelings raw and passionate! At this stage I am truly ‘LOST IN THE WILDERNESS’ with no way out but through the canvas. Look deeper, don’t think, just paint!
With each throw the burden becomes lighter; joyful, renewed energy takes its place. The heavy weight now lifted, I find myself openly welcoming in the new moment…PEACE!
