My past year at Southwestern College has taken me on an intense personal journey. I have spent most of my life desperately trying to figure things out. I moved to Santa Fe to study Art Therapy and learn a bunch of theory and technique. I wanted to get smarter. Although I have collected tons of information about psychology, counseling and art therapy, my world has opened up to so much more! Most importantly, I have discovered that the mystical land of NOT KNOWING is really a much richer place to live. Recently, I am more intrigued by the mysteries of life and find myself less caught up in what is fact. I am enjoying wondering more than knowing. Instead of clawing for the “right” answer, I am quietly waiting and watching the wonderful possibilities unfold before me. Living life sure is easier being open and accepting instead of trying to nail everything down!
I have been painting birds for a long time so the bird theme is nothing new. But my latest birds are freer, lighter and more open to something beyond. Click on the link to see a short video of a watercolor being painted where a pair of white doves emerge from the page.
