About "I Just Want to Be Near You"

Two shall become One...

We never outgrow our need for true companionship. We are wired to long for the red passion of friendship and companionship. We also have a deep inner need for faith (blue) and for companionship with God. When we feel valued our lines overlap. We colour each other's lives.
Trust can be a fragile thing, but it is the foundation on which all relationships are built.

A true relationship is a trust given and trust received. It implies being vulnerable, showing my dark areas, spilling my colours into a muddy mess. Allowing others to correct my lines, and cover me where I am wrong.

To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.

I can only be strong when I am weak. When I allow myself to be true to my heart, showing my weakness, I can allow the white light to shine into my life.

How I Create

The brightness of oils is mixed with the soft translucency of encaustics (wax), and creates hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewer becomes a part of the slow change and clarity of the painting...as if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind. There is a strange ethereal beauty to these paintings, as if made from air.
