Pounding On The Windows
March 7, 2016
The day beganwith the pounding of rainalmost as loud as thunder and now the sun coats the land in eye dazzling brilliance. Mother was slow getting up this morning as she had a turbulent night of sleep. Now recovered and sitting in her chair as she gazes out windows into the blazing morning that turns every green into neon. Trees and bushes nude from winters cold are being covered in small verdant leaves and blooms jump open in the sun. It is still cool and the fire gives welcome heat but outside the stirring of life is in full display. There is a energy that swirls around every lime green shoot in the garden as everything begins to sing and dance.
The new work is also springing forth in ways I was not expecting. The large painting of water and reflections seems determined to go it’s own direction. Rather than fighting it am going along with it to see where it will take me. Already have covered new combinations of images and color. As though wounded it is healing it’s self and showing a strong will to go forward from the expected. Not sure where this is taking me and am sure it is the way to go. The lily pad piece has changed the distant aloofness to a more personal engaging work. It to is unexpected and leading me on a journey to a more visual complex space. The other works are leaping and surging toward unknown regions and yet there is a lack of fear or worry. As though it is time to go to new places of though and ideas. Maybe a spring is happening to me as the work that was so delightful last year seems to be a memory more distant and less important and the new more vital. What ever is happening it is refreshing and challenging. Am glad I not camping where I was. It was a good place and I need to move on and grow more. The joy of seeing the new and breaking into new areas of thought is exhilarating.
The images of the garden come to mind as plants pop up and grow. Some that were there do not come up for some reason they are gone and new ones fill the spaces. The land scape changes and even it’s colors form new combinations and the spirit of life continues.
Hope you are finding the spirit of your life is strong and what is new is not a disappointment. That you are content to let your life reflect you hopes and dreams and to be happy with what you find growing and changing in you. That you share your life and enjoy others as you journey on. That you grow strong in the hope that is in you.
