Non-dual Impressionist Landscape
This oil painting was in my heart the moment I saw the autumn trees at the foot of Mount Fuji in Japan. The crisp cold air, the cyan blue sky, the stark volcanic grey earth and orange yellow autumn leaves, a harsh beauty that took my breath away. It demanded to be painted, and so I bowed in surrender.
I always say that my paintings paint themselves, the best ones do. They come to life. It’s an intuitive movement, there is very little to no mind in control. I cannot feel the edges between the art, the artist and myself as the open awareness that the art emerges in.
There is love and joy. When the colours blend and the intuitive feeling arises that this is the right colour. I can’t tell you how the colours are mixed. If I try to paint, the colours muddy, the shapes seem contrived.
When Life paints, the art is alive, it can be felt. This is the intention of the gift of sharing this work. I feel that my artwork is maturing in this intention. The style seems to be about blended becoming dynamic becoming detailed.
Our eyes don’t see everything in detail. Our eyes see only a focal awareness point that comes to life under the light of awareness. Without knowing that my painting was starting to express this, I see that this is exactly what is happening.
I am noticing that my art is teaching non-duality, attention and how life appears in and of awareness.
How wonderful, what a lovely surprise.
I love sharing my art. They are created for sharing, so that we can enjoy.
That’s why I’ve embedded the Facebook post of my art, so that you can see when it was created and also feel apart of the my community.
