A portion of your soul...entwined with mine...

“Two Trees
A portion of your soul has been entwined with mine
A gentle kind of togetherness, while separately we stand.
As two trees deeply rooted in separate plots of ground,
While their topmost branches come together,
Forming a miracle of lace against the heavens.” 
― Janet Miles

This beautiful tree was first layer on a painting that evolved into another painting....  My hands want to paint other things but then when I stand back... I see new things and it changes.

Color pushes sensations throughout me when I paint. It is a pulsing of energy that I cannot turn away from.  Perhaps it is a kind of addiction.  

In other words, color is also a spirit that spreads through me when I paint pulling the piece back and forth as it ebbs and tides into the final composition. The spirit of life, love and light weave through. The potential stayed alive through the transition of what was to what is. They are one in the same.  Together and yet apart.

"You were called to freedom, brothers and sisters." Galatians 5:13
