Colors fascinate and captivate me. I love to use lots of color when I paint. And I like deep, rich colors in my home. I love bright pure white Zen homes, but I need to live in a rough and tumble succulent environment of textures, sensual silks and velvets drenched in the essence of ruby reds, emerald greens, sapphire blue. It’s difficult to summon up the gemstone radiance when I am creating a painting. It takes a lot of paint. I need to keep it thick while mixing and combining to get the colors to be strong, dark, yet vibrant. But, the real magic and beauty of my home is the Presence of love, calm, harmony, and contentment. Reality sits here so close to me, as I lean into It, It holds me closer. I am in Life’s embrace. I sense this abiding assuredness in the feeling of comfort and peace that is with me. The closer I get to Life, being open and vulnerable to this Living Presence, the more beautiful everything becomes. It continues to surprise me with such magical things that happen. I feel the holiness in the quiet and in the turmoil. That makes me smile. How incredibly sublime to feel this Love that lives as all the delights of this immeasurable Self we are.
