Beyond the path that cuts between the trees, there begins your journey. You have all the time between that point and the mountains far off in the distance– where will the journey take you? Usually, I first come upon a creek, whispering as it trickles over stones of all sizes. I have to hop stones in some areas to clear the creek, but it's not deep in any event, and the water is pure.
From where you cross the creek, out across the landscape, and creeping up onto the foothills of the mountain, is a blanket of dancing color as far as the eyes can see. Stretching from left to right, and corner to corner, are wild flowers a-sway in the breeze, birds and sounds of rustling. The field casts colorful patterns that move around the austerely placed trees and shrubs, and comes alive every time the wind speaks.
When you reach the end of the field, you'll find the foliage thickens and the dense forested foothills begs you to slow down, and summons you to a spot there where you'll find a path that takes you up the mountain. I haven't yet began to imagine what's beyond the door of the mountains foothill. It is still left to discover. Perhaps you can, too.
Bring forward through layers
I load the canvas with paint and work it over the surface, to give it movement and place. And then I stand back, to seek what is there.
The artful journey is never over, at least not for me. There may be times of rest, but no peice ever becomes barren of inspiration.
