My paintings are more of the “transformational” nature rather than the “transactional” or commercial nature. I love that phrase, given me by my confidant, Charlotte. I’m ready to grow into that now as a point of view, and those of you who subscribe to my blog, I believe will understand and embrace this. I hope so.
A leaf falls in
without a sound.
- Matsuo Bashō 1644-1694 1813S
This poem alludes to the formless, where-from the multitude of forms arise. Just learn how to get quiet. Let go of all the thinking that disturbs you, the judgments, the criticisms, the fears. Get quiet. From that silent place, the place of heart and soul, out of your head, new creativity may arise, clarity when you do have to make decisions and move forward in the world of forms.

My confidant is Charlotte Tomaino, author of Awakening the Brain, a book about The Neuropsychology of Grace. I am happy to be advised by Charlotte. Charlotte suggested the terms “transformational” vs “transactional”, borrowed from Richard Rohr.
