Self, Elements, Teal Skirt

I went to the Source. Volcanic beach in Maui. In Hawaii Mother Earth is currently in the creative process. I stood at the threshold of shore. Viewing art is one of the most potent ways I connect within. Here I am viewing Mother Nature's art and creating my piece through non doing. Through feeling, as opposed to action. Stillness, as opposed to movement. I simply stood and experienced. Movements, pulsations, emotions were felt inside the containment and structure of my own body. The viewer observed this subtle experience taking place, and how the elements played with me: wind creating patterns with my skirt and hair, foam and water interacting at my feet. The microscope of intention - art- accentuates the magical interaction that takes place when I am outside in the elements.
