When I’m lost in the painting process,
there are impulses that arise,
dictating my color choices.
Ideas bubble up to the surface,
changing the direction of my painting.
Symbols appear between layers of paint and under my fingertips,
their repetitive arrival beating a tattoo
**** – do you hear me? do you understand my meaning? –
they seem to say.
And I, I stand back from the painty table,
look down at what I have painted,
and words and images and ephemeral ideas come floating into my head.

Like this whimsical figurative abstract. It reminds me of two dancers, swaying to their unique rhythm, lost in the mystery…hearts open…twirling, swirling, swaying…It reminds me of these lines by Rumi:
Dancing is not just getting up painlessly,
like a leaf blown on the wind;
dancing is when you tear your heart out
and rise out of your body to
hang suspended between the worlds.
