Artwork Statement

Have you ever wondered, if just for a moment, if you were more than what you could see and touch? Have you ever felt there was something inside of you, something intangible that was your guiding compass? And, that maybe it filtered into your body by a largess of something shimmery that you could feel right in the center of your body?

Have you ever wandered outside just before dawn and gazed upon the planets or a brilliant first-magnitude star such as Antares, Sirius, Aldebaran, Regulus, or Arcturus and attuned yourself to its presence? Maybe you’ve whispered silent wishes in hopes that something or someone will hear.

Quiet Surrender—Is a reminder that your true essence is spiritual light, clothed in this life by a physical body. Surrendering is not about giving up, but rather opening your mind and heart to your star-self, your higher self that guides you ever upward on the path of destiny. It affirms that an important wish or hope may soon be fulfilled, so relax into this knowing… surrender into this knowing. With dozens of layers of paint and glaze, see the YOU with open arms breathing and receiving your own iridescent light.

Be crumbled so that wildflowers will come up where you are.

You have been stony for too many years.

Try something different.

Surrender.

~ Rumi
