The Journey Continues

It is almost a week since the Contemplative Landscape workshop in Death Valley with Lydia Goetz and George deWolf.  It was an incredible experience artistically; we were encouraged to explore our awareness of place and self through mindfulness training.

 

  

At times I felt like the new tools I was given were getting in the way of the visual experience, after all, I was in Death Valley, a place of remarkable beauty contrasted with endless desolation. I had to learn to let go of the search for the postcard. In reflecting back through the images, I see the beginnings of a heightened clarity of vision, and the intuitive sense of what can be possible.

 

 
 What I now possess is  the mindful practice of feeling/seeing what is in front of me without the filter of expectations.  I have been told it will take a couple of years to truly grow into this new level of authenticity in my work. I am including a few samples of the week's experiences.
