If you’re like me, it may require “steady presence and silky attention” (thank you, Mary Oliver) to see the myriad of colors in a blanket of snow. It’s more than white. To look long(ingly) at 2020’s second photo may render such revelation. (It might help to look back and forth between 2020’s two images.)
There are, indeed, “other clocks” (thank you, Bayo Akomolafe.)
2020 – This is what I wrote in 2020 to accompany this post of photos:
“This one is in process, and I really need to see the two, painting and photo, side by side on equal footing. I’ve been painting from a printed version of the photo and I’m noticing now that it has much different coloration. I’m trusting that putting these two together will render next steps.
May I see you, Soul,
tickling my finite response,
with these tender blades.
“Seven Years of Wonder” is a daily look back at my creative journaling posts since 2014. I began this journey on Feb. 11, 2021, and hope to continue through Feb. 10, 2022. What am I learning about my art and faith journey thus far? What has remained constant? Where have I been changed? How is this impacting present and future art-making?
A deep bow of gratitude to you for keeping me company on this journey.
