Luminous Realm Painting
Our interior realm of creativity is a colorful, mysterious, wild and energetic place. It includes details of ourselves that are of recognized value:
The Poetics of our Being.
The Luminous Realm Painting Workshop
is where the act of creating is more powerful than the outcome.
Trust in the play of what wants to be revealed. Bring presence to your own voice. Follow your innate intelligence and congruity through a doorway of deeper knowing.
Learn to stay in the face of whatever arises.
I offer a wonderful studio setting in which to explore with paint, brush and paper your inner landscape:
the colors, the shapes, the lines and dots, the feelings and textures of your Self.
Curiosity, sharing and respectful witnessing are components to the studio environment.
It is a haven of allowance, where you have permission to let your creativity thrive and expand with no judgement or criticism.
Learn to trust your intuition and not the mind’s critical chatter.
This particular method of painting allows for a meditative process bridging your creativity to your own deeper realms.
Step outside your daily life and discover the unexpected.
You will experience a alchemical potency, renewing and refreshing one’s sense of self by following your energy rather than what looks good or makes sense.
Luminous Realm Color
A 3 Day Immersion in Color Relationships
Color is integral to our lives. Each of our visions is unique. However, there is a common denominator when we reference the color of the morning sky, an autumn Aspen leaf, a red firetruck: we all have a universal image and consensus of certain colors.
I am offering a 3 day immersion into the study and play of color and color relationships. We will begin with a day exploring the color Grey: creating scales of grey from light to dark, warm to cool, to allow our vision to become more aware of the subtleties within a neutral color.
The second day will have us looking at the interaction of color via cutting and pasting opaque color paper. Josef Albers book “Interaction of Color” is the inspiration behind this class.
On the third day, we will paint with color. We will create color “palettes” using gouache paint on paper. We will be discovering and investigating the different qualities of pigment, tones and values.
You will begin seeing the colors of the world around you from a fresh perspective. There is an aliveness and energy to the natural world that becomes more apparent; a deeper sensitivity to light, shadow, color and relationships in the life around you.
This is a wonderful retreat for anyone wanting to train their eyes to see color in ways they haven’t before. This knowledge is evident immediately and can then be integrated into each person’s interests: painting, photography, home interiors, clothing, gardening. We begin to see the daily world around us with greater appreciation.
