Some of life's experiences can be quite difficult. After my second eye surgery in 2003 I had to lie face down on a massage table for several weeks. When I learned doctors were unable to save the vision in one eye and was diagnosed with macular degeneration in the other eye, I began an intense self-pity party. After 6 weeks I was told it was ok to sit up. So, what was the first thing I did? I checked my email. Go figure. Synchronistically, the very first email of that day was one I will never forget. It was from Beliefnet.com with my angel message of the day. It was a quote by James Hillman which read:
"To see the angel in the malady requires an eye for the invisible,
a sort of blinding of one eye in order to see elsewhere."
Needless to say that quote ended my pity party. At first I thought my art was a thing of the past but this experience showed me there was another way. That way was to do the same thing as I'd always done ... paint what I see and what I feel. The difference is what I see and feel is totally different that it was 'before.' I have been carrying a copy of that quote in my wallet since that day.
After that nudge from the Universe, I began painting the emotions and subliminal images of my dreams then those of clients. It has been an interesting journey to say the least. I invite you to take a look at some of them, see what you see. Your way of looking at any one will be different than anyone else's and unique to you.
