I had lunch with my beloved Aniesa Thames (Holistic Facilitator & Ecologist of the Soul thecouncilofself.org) yesterday at one of our favorite spots - the patio at Bishop's Lodge in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We talked about my art and Aniesa reminded me of how vital it is for me to put feelings of love in my paintings. I should not "think" the process (thoughts like "will the viewer be able to see patience in this painting?") because none of that matters. All that matters is to FEEL the loving patience and allow that to flow. Thank you Aniesa for that precious reminder.
