Past, present, future.
Time as we know it is linear. In the cosmic dimension, it is always present.
In my mind, time is circular.
For a long period, the dark moments and long nights seemed endless.
The dreams — monochromatic shades of black, charcoal gray, a blur of pewter haze and shapeless shadows.
The angst was sharp, searing.
Grace from the divine beamed to uplift the spirit.
The brilliant sunset and afterglow are still dramatic in the mind’s eye.
The first brushstrokes are tentative, vulnerable.
Starting anew after a drought is a cathartic process of fire and heat. The elements of purification — for brilliant diamonds and precious metals, are the same for elements of artistic creation.
At first, one begins with muted tones of deep and light blue then there are splashes or bright colors — pink, red, orange. The colors emerge from deep within the heart. A burst of inspiration flows — to paint, to write, to compose, to create again.
New colors ignite the imagination and stir the dormant passion.
Dawn will wash across the once dark velvet sky with pastel streaks of yellow gold. It is the radiance of the rising sun.
“Transcendence to dreamscapes”
“My inner journey continues
As I explore the timeless world of dreams
And the joyous colors of life.
In the silence of my heart,
I listen to the poetry
And symphony of nature.
In the realm of the spirit,
I discover infinite variations
Of the mind’s recurring visions of the future.
Nature’s images I capture as abstract prisms
And transcendent impressions.
Until a new panorama of Dreamscapes unfolds,
Reflecting a fascination with the nuances of light — radiant and luminous,
Impressions of timeless vistas
Blend with memories of the future
And déjà vu images of the past.
The inner journey evokes a poetic
symphony of abstract visions,
serenity in solitude, cosmic emotions
and the moods of life.
My flights to the transcendental real
Are rare glimpses of luminescence and infinity.
Life’s Dreamscapes these are,
Owing to Sun, the radiant source.
To diptychs of the Sun.
To Cell, the basic unit.
To mandala and squares
Settling on Arches.
As in sunrise over blue mountains
or orange sky, or blue-orange sea.
Rising, shining, setting
The cosmic cycles of dreams:
Earth, sea and sky…”
