i listed this painting today that is about learning to meditate for me. let the lace elephants parade on by and parachutes and tigers try to distract me… i’m calm and centered as they pass on by:-) i’m not looking for answers… or “ansfers”, just listening to my inner quiet.
i sometimes listen to pema chodron audio tapes in the morning before painting to center myself. painting is also a form of meditation. being present with color, texture, collage and imagery. i like that. i think about what it would be like to visit pema’s monastery in nova scotia… it kind of scares me to think about being quiet and meditating for so many hours in a day, but that’s probably precisely why it would be good for me!
We’ll have art and prints available at bargain basement prices. And we’ll be serving mojitos! We’d love to see you!
