A spiritual awakening is often found and developed in a wilderness. It can be a poem or a parable of a deep forest, a mountain meadow or a cactus-studded desert. The outdoor spirit of plein air refreshes and further enables the indoor studio chapel. Each new creative beginning is a confirmation of the simple truth of taking care. And while it may all appear to be self-indulgent and isolating, every thought, every stroke, every caress of the brush adds a small refreshment of meaning and purpose to our universe. "Work is love made visible." (Kahlil Gibran)
I find this to be so true in my life as a painter. It is important for me to have a place where I can focus and work. Magundy is my sanctuary. My place to do my art. The act of living in the wilderness amongst the trees and by the river replenishes my creative spirit.
