I have long gathered resources to support an Embodied sense of aliveness. Training in massage yoga tai chi and qi gong all supported my journey.
I have noticed a vast difference between believing or understanding something with thinking, intellectually, and understanding something through my body, a felt sense of knowing. Then I can sense more clearly this “aliveness” felt all through my body, and deep heart. I want to paint from this clarity and fullness.
When clear body awareness emerges it changes my sense of the present moment. I find this felt sense or embodied awareness is part of being in the present moment. I celebrate a felt-sense for the body of Earth as holy honoring the beauty and the grace of mountains, ocean, prairie, sky. I hope my paintings will share this beauty and reveal the awe I feel.
