”Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art.”
~ Leonardo da Vinci ~
It is through creativity that we can connect to what many would call the spirit world. The greatest artists all knew this. Working with what I like to call the intangible on a daily basis trains us to be open to suggestion as well as communication with something far greater than ourselves. For most of us “art” begins with the mechanical act of copying. We get better at it. We get accolades and likes. But art is not only about copying. There is something more available to those who seek it. I have said this on many occasions not as an attack on those seeking only skill, but simply as a way to reach out to those who are seeking more. Copying will never get you the connection you seek. No specific style or technique will either. How can they? We are all unique. We are all different as is the intangible.
My own journey has brought me here. I come to you as a guide to show you what is possible. What I say may not be believable to most, but I know with absolute certainty that what I have experienced is very real and excruciatingly beautiful.
I also know from experience that working in nature or from life will give you a better chance to come face to face with “it”. It is there right before your eyes if you really know what to look for. The aboriginal peoples of this country knew that what I speak of. Leonardo knew it too. It surrounds us at all time. It is within everyone’s grasp.
It is there for you.
You just need to connect.
