A Bigger Splash of Colour


Black and Blue, mixed media

‘I only went for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.’

These words by the nineteenth century Scottish-born American naturalist, John Muir (1838-1914).
I am beginning to revisit my own personal experience of working with nature – and colour in particular.   For instance, how can I intergrate my spiritual practice with the intuitive processes in my artistic practice?  The obvious way might be to meditate using visualizations of different colours to bring the ‘internal’ landscape into sharper focus , or I might begin by freeing my conscious mind from any pre-conceived ideas altogether and allowing whatever needs to surface to unfold like the petals of a flower.
