Finishing what we begin

One of the most wonderful feelings has to be that of ‘completion’, finishing something that we begin.

in my mothers garden doneToday I finished a triptic that I began this fall entitled “In my mother’s Garden”. The truth is it often felt like this piece was doing something to me far more than I was painting it. A ‘memory picture’ it was inspired by a photograph I took outside my parent’s kitchen window the last time I saw my Mom. It was early spring, and that day the first fern broke through the still crusty earth.

Hanging in my dining room, this piece serves as a reminder that as we open and unfurl to reach for the light we experience growth. It reminds me that what I grow in my life generates the seeds that will grow into our Future.

What’s growing in your life? Are you ready to harvest the potential?

Moments when it’s important to look carefully

One Woman’s Tree of Life

First, let me apologise for the poor quality of this image which is due to the simple fact that the photograph was taken more than a decade ago.

Since my work with the Mereon Matrix began, inconceivably almost thirty years ago, my focus has been on where geometry is found in global cultural traditions. Ancient wisdom and the concept of dynamic geometry as ‘sacred’ has long been more than a metaphor in how I’ve sought to understand the sequential dynamics of relationship.

This painting was done as a commission for a friend who may only now understand it, the sequence between the forms and nature now laid out twice: first in “The Mereon Matrix; Unity, Perspective and Paradox”; and in “Discovering Your Youniverse”.

The water is the emotions flowing gently over the land; the octahedron in blue is symbolic of the stabilising force in her life, her husband; the space between them symbolises their shared universe; the first Kepler/Catalan solid highlights her essential nature, that of being able to run a ten ring circus! And from this the branches of her life, her children, her work and her passion grow out into the world.

A whole and w-holy system indeed.
