In my studio last week for the first time in what felt like a very long time. Too much in my head with my attempt to express and create art that I thought represented me. SCREEEEeeech!

Thinking never gets me anywhere and I should have known that but I forget my practice time to time. It takes continual re-alignment of self back to center, back to the moment and when I feel myself back there, it feels so good and THAT’s how I know I am there…. This painting came from that practice of mindfulness, it came from my heart. My heart was spilling over with feelings for my son, Jaco. Compassion, understanding, Empathy, Joy, pure love. It felt so good to express from my spirit what he brings to my life.
