and its making on You-Tube
My art is an expression of who I am. My experience with mental healing and my pursuit of wellness feeds my body, mind, and soul, and thereby my art. Acceptance and encouragement make me happy. Conversely, being judged and criticized does harm. This piece ‘Mysterious Woods’ speaks of the mystery of life. Changes happen in multiple and simultaneous ways to all of us. I show multiple views of this tree scene to express my sense of a fractured but universal world view. This kind of serenity is what we can all feel regardless of our problems, disabilities, or psychological and emotional disposition. What we have in common is stronger than what divides us. Spending time in nature brings us to the awareness of our common humanity. Perhaps the joy I feel in creating my artwork can bring a sense of peace and loving commonality to the world.
