Today, on this Full Pink Moon
day I would like to share the
painting from my retreat that
was most powerful to me.
It was the culmination of all the other
paintings rolled into one and seemed
to complete the journey of those five
days. I did start another painting, but
it is probably not done and I will share
it at a later time.
I can’t even title this one in my
head, no matter, but it sprang
from a shamanic meditation
that we experienced through
drumming and all the feelings
expressed in this piece came
through that meditation.
At first things were flowing along
and the painting was in my head,
IN MY HEAD, which was not
so good because as I expressed the
idea through the brush it became
sicky, sappy, sweet and I got really
angry, which I did not expect al all.
I scraped through the anger
with a palette knife,
and got it out and
that brought me back
to the light which is where
My goddess perhaps?
I would also like to share a few more shots taken
in and around Berkeley. It was a fun day and the campus
of UC Berkeley was really beautiful and green and the buildings
Another shot from under
the olive tree at the art museum.
A sculpture outside
the art museum I found to
be quite powerful.
And some shots of Lake Merritt in
Oakland. A salt water lake that
sits in the middle of the city with
walk/jog trails, many sea birds
and is ringed with lights at night.
The fountain at the top of
The pavilion behind the
fountain in the above shot.
And the marvelous twisted
roots that ring the columns.
Hope you enjoyed.
