I am a painter who paints. Before now, I was a painter who only photographed what I wanted to paint. But one day, not too long ago, I read the War of Art, by Steven Pressfield, and my world changed. The clarity of his theory that Resistance to your calling can only be overcome by turning Pro (showing up at your calling every day), and invoking the Muses for their assistance, was like a light shining through the darkness of my desires.
Some of you may know me from my photography blog, Orbs Delight. So many nights photographing the energy phenomenon called “orbs” has colored my palette in black and white. Although I live in the West, I’ve yet to become a Western Artist. Haven’t managed to paint a saguaro or colorful hacienda. My Muse wants light on water, mists that dance, entrances into inner space. We’ll see what she calls forth as this blog chronicles the images she inspires.
Thank you for visiting.
