I am making an attempt to convey several things with my paintings. The colors are influenced by the more vibrant color I see in the dream world at night. Also I am idealizing the flower or leaf, seeing it as an icon, an object of contemplation and meditation. I hope to convey a state of no-mind, the place of the higher self, the place of larger truths and compassion. The painting could be a doorway to connect with the world's love energy and its enlightenment.
The mandala shape as in the concentric circles of a labyrinth and as a symbol of wholeness and healing, is a profound inspiration for me. The organized psyche centers around love-beauty-gratitude-appreciation.
