The pressure points of our life serve to create something new, something better from them, in the end, "as pressure does to carbon deep beneath the earth". (Fr Richard Rohr)
I’ve been pressing into this new series of paintings, several canvases under way in the studio. Each one takes a different angle, experimenting with color, texture, degree of abstraction.
The common thread through each image is the idea from Matthew’s Gospel ‘you are the light of the world’.
Alongside these paintings I have been delivering training and coaching sessions to organizational leaders alongside presentations to students at the Potter’s House.
The creative process happens in a conversation as well as on a canvas.
