Still Life with Pear and Silver Cup

Click to view auction

Just sharing a bit from Siddhartha in relation to what mindful studio practice means to me:
“The river has taught me to listen; you will learn from it, too. The river knows everything; one can learn everything from it.” 
“Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?”
“Yes, Siddhartha,” he said. “Is this what you mean? That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere, at that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past, nor the shadow of the future?” ~ Excerpt is a conversation between Siddhartha & Vasudeva, pp. 105-7, Siddhartha, by Herman Hesse, 1922.

for you to see beauty here

there is beauty in me
it means there is beauty rooted
so deep within you
you can't help but
see it everywhere
—Rupi Kaur, milk and honey (2014), photo of book page here

Related to my postings on mindful studio practice, I recommend the work of Rupi Kaur, who is a poet, artist, and performer. From her site: "As a 21-year-old university student Rupi wrote, illustrated and self-published her first poetry collection, milk and honey... [which] takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look."

If you look closely, in the bowl you can see my self-portrait reflection. Here are a bunch of my paintings with self portrait reflections

"Each human is a complex, contradictory story. Some stories within us have been unfolding for years, others are trembling with fresh life as they peek above the horizon. Each is a zigzag of emotional design and ancestral architecture. All the stories in the Earth's mind are connected."
