Two New Paintings

Believing, I See. Acrylic & mixed media. 11"x14"

Listening. Acrylic & mixed media. 11"x14".
Life is full of surprises. 
Much of our time is spent trying to control what happens 
and to understand how things work. 
When we practice "Don't Know," 
instead of thinking - or hoping-that we have the answers, 
we stay alert to each unfolding moment as a unique experience. 
In this way we bring a freshness to each moment...
which helps us to stay awake to the magic of life.

That's a clip I read from a book of mine 
shortly after sinking in to some serious discomfort with these two ladies in the painting process,
and allowing that discomfort to lead me down a road 
totally different from where I expected to go.

And you know what?

I love them more than I ever loved my expectation of the result.
