Seeing the watercolors all together in the space was inspiring! Below are a few photos of the art crowd at Michael Peter Hayes' Art Salon in Locust Valley last night.It was so wonderful to share my work and hear responses to the work!! It has been inspiring to carry on a dialogue with others about working with the effects of light as it changes over the day. I have utilized the structure of the "liturgy of the hours" used by so many religious orders for daily prayer. This helps me to organize my vision and awareness and document the effects of light and shadow on my perception. I reckon that a tradition of discipline that has encouraged heightened awareness and mindfulness in prayer would help me to attain that in my visual meditation of painting.
Any thoughts on that?
