Half-Light & Silence
Painting from the soul makes use of these elements, these
half-lights and silences. In and through and under the
paint, above and beyond the tools there is a communion. A
coming to the table, where we offer our work, in faith and
hope and most of all love. In half-light we greet the
shadow that guides disappointment along a path to
redemption. Witnessing the silent passing of a rose into
dust, we learn that beauty lies not only in the rose, but
also in the dust. We prepare the gifts we offer, and we
receive them back again, in half-lights and silences.
