The Collective: abstract painting, summer flowers and color inspiration

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Dear Tina,

I loved reading your last letter. Yes, I agree, drawing is a really good way to slow down and  “see”.  Creating little flower posies and viewing them through the lens of my camera is one of the ways I “see”.  It’s become a large part of my creative process and a meditative practice for me.

Walking around my garden and seeing what’s in bloom ignites something in soul that I cannot explain.  I see endless combinations of colors and textures and my heart literally expands from this visual orchestra.

I recently revisited Georgia O’Keeffe’s work to share with one of my students and this quote really struck a chord with me:

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.

~Georgia O’Keeffe

This is how I have been feeling lately with my own work. I have such a deep appreciation and reverence for the beauty in our natural world that I cannot express with words. My latest painting is an attempt to share what is in my heart.
