Iím currently reading a book called ďThe Power of NowĒ by Eckhart Tolle. Itís not an easy read, in that the concepts he presents are so simple that they are impossible for the mind to grasp. Of course for those of you who have read his book, or those of you who practice meditation, you know how difficult it is to turn the mind off and just be present.
There is a sweet spot in painting, when the mind seems to shut down and cease its endless babble, when the process of painting is all that exists. Time suspends, ego evaporates, separation between self and paint and canvas disappears. Everything just is.
