I love nesting. Making a safe place to let go. Often, I find myself waiting for that moment when the chaos passes. I’m still waiting.
This painting, Soft Landing, is about making peace with uncertainty—groundlessness. So in the midst of hurricanes, political upheaval & the reality that we control very little, we can choose to surrender. Accept that things change, leaving us without foundation-- and that our sense of solidness comes from our open state of mind. We can embrace the ride as a wonderful flow down the rapids or ride it white-knuckled on a roller coaster.
So in painting this work, I imagine finding zen in the imbalance—knowing that everything shifts under my feet and trying to embrace wherever the shifts may lead. Ultimately, trusting that things will unfold as they should. And relish the freshness of every moment. Finding peace and wonder in the flow.
May you find peace in your uncertainty and beauty in even the unexpected moments.
