Centering, opening, often surprising

The painting practice holds offerings

Coming from inside the heart, my heart

 

Even in its pauses

Focused fluttering

Evidenced in meditative markings

Rhythms of doubt

 

Accruing its own history

Outside the self

As aspirations morph into facts

Identities take shape

 

Color plays

Exquisite attention

Inherent

In looking, in action

 

Surrendering to the patterns
