Hi again. Here is the finished painting "Autumn Mist Rising." I am glad it's finished and happy with the results. I'm always glad when a painting is finished so I can get on to the adventure of the next one! Painting is an obsession with me as it probably is with most artists. I would be ecstatic if I could just paint without other survival related concerns that take time and energy. A friend of mine recently suggested that I need a wife...
I was expressing my view on painting and creative endeavors to someone the other day. She (and many others) diminish the value of creativity, putting it into the low rung of life's priorities even though they have strong urges to create. This person happened to be a psychotherapist who is spiritually motivated in service to others. I expressed that when one is channeling their creativity they are as close to the "Creator" as one can get. When you are in the act of creating you are in synch with the same consciousness that created all that is. It flows through your entire being. That's my opinion and what I experience.
Today's Quotation: "Intuitive artists are messengers. Their symbolic vocabulary originates from the infinite wisdom of higher spheres, in a non-referential time/space continuum..."
