I started this painting the second week of February right as the Covid-19 began to call us all to stay at home. For me, it has been a time of settling into a time of quieting my mind and listening to the deeper truth of who I am, and who we are as human beings. So, deep within me I feel the laying down of a firm foundation, grounded in and directed by love for all. Now, upon this firm foundation, I recognize that I can begin to rebuild a future where I see all people as equal and empowered, where opportunity in co-creating a better world for all abounds, where I care for Mother Earth, and where I practice love for my Creator by loving others as myself. It’s going to take work. I have to knock down some walls of prejudice, habits of judging, and using thoughts and words to make others wrong so I can feel right, if only in my own mind! I am willing and ready to do the work. Here I go!
