Inspiration and flow cont.

I have been painting for what feels like a lifetime, and when I am painting, or even writing these blogs, I am tapping into the source. The source being the inspiration that I have encountered along the way, each day or night, and in between. I have been fortunate to meet some great folks, who share their stories, and I have been known to translate some of these into painted visions. Perhaps at heart I am a folk artist, or perhaps a spirit painter, I like to think I am a story teller, and a documentarian of wisdom, the kind of wisdom that underlies knowledge, the current and flow of information that we as humans cannot afford to lose. Although there is a spiritual aspect to my work, I also think spiritual experience has its variance amongst the many, and that is why it is a good idea for me to be open while being discerning at the same time. Sometimes it’s just a feel thing, I commit to my gut and heart, this is more or less the ambiguous aspect of my story, and leaves for a lot of uncertainty and reliance on patience and trust, though I am very much a student in this matter, and am constantly working at it. I also have experienced what I call flash visions. Following a flash vision I like to research some of the components of the vision, that is if it is something of this world, and than make notes, doodle and than translate that into a painting. It might seem a little ambiguous, and I know from experience that even the most mundane of activities, or encounters can foster a creative burst, this is the zen way, in that no matter how big or small the encounter, no matter how crazy or calm, the input is always available, and when I tap into a good one, the law of attraction, based on my observations and experience, does seem to correlate with good output and flow. Perhaps this close to being effortless, though in my experience work has always been a rather crucial component, the good work that is.
