“Here’s the deal. The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed -- to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is.” ~ Parker J. Palmer
HIDDEN TRUTHS I HIDDEN TRUTHS II Look close. Can you see fish that are layered into the paintings? It is the same with truth. It is there, but we often have to look deeper.

COMPANIONS IN SOLITUDE I COMPANIONS IN SOLITUDE II I enjoy the ritual of incense and often burn it in my studio. When I last bought a batch, I picked up a card listing the ten virtues of burning incense.’ Number four was ‘It is a Companion in Solitude‘. I was painting these pieces at the time, and it was a reminder, we are alive in the flow. Pause, deepen our self connection in this state, and be present to others.
