OUT OF THE ETHER
Ether was once considered the 5th element. It fills the universe beyond the terrestrial sphere. Ether is space, stillness. It is that which connects us to spirit, intuition, other realms, and planes.
An important part of my artistic practice and studio ritual begins by rubbing some essential oils between the palms of my hands and praying to the muses and our higher power to grant me a bounty of creativity as I step up to the easel. Open my heart and mind to new ideas. Allow my brushes to fly across the surface bringing ideas from the ether into fruition and this realm.
