Title: Discomfort â€¢ Blue
Media: watercolor and acrylic on Arches cold press
Original size: 10 x 13 inches
This text is entitled A Franciscan Blessing, but it is often easier to identify a work by the first lines or a focal point, so I arrived at calling it Discomfort.
It is interesting that human nature is often motivated out of complacency and into supreme positive action by the heat of negative situations. In that context, discomfort, anger, tears and foolishness are wished upon us - to the end that we would live in relationships of integrity and depth, work for justice, freedom and peace; help foster comfort and joy, and all in all, be courageous enough to make a difference with our life.
My fascination with the power of ‘thoughts made visible’ and the mystery of the word as a vehicle of communication has led me on a wonderful journey as I merge message and technique with watercolor, brush and pen into a finished piece. Each piece brings exploration, inspiration and discovery — on a concrete level as I work with my tools and experience; on a spiritual level as a passionate heart treasures God. My response to life’s journey is to work with words, be inspired by great texts, express the abstract more tangibly and ... listen ... for God's still, small, gentle voice within the cacophony of the ups and downs, joys and sorrows experienced. In this relationship God comes transforming, with hope-full and wonderful surprises!
