All my paintings surprise me on some level; this one came slowly and with a lot of inner agitation until she was completed. The Water Bearer is the third painting in a group of paintings that have depicted women and their unique inner life force. For me, the painting seems to be about the origin of power and Mystery and its gift to all of us.
Out of the ashes of the old is born the beginnings of the new.
The primary focus of waking life studio is to create an ongoing conversation about what it means to heal, and to explore how our dreams bring to us what is new and alive and awaiting us in our potential. I will use some of my own dream exploration as a means to speak to what is often hard to define from the experiences of everyday life.
Please stay tuned!
