Breathing Underwater

{"id":4337079648317,"title":"Breathing Underwater","handle":"breathing-underwater","description":"\u003cp\u003e36” x 48” Oil on Canvas 2019\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eHow does one breathe under water? The fish do it and I do it, as a diver searching for pearls. Submerse yourself with me. We will all need to learn how to breathe underwater. Soon we will leave the dryness and enter into communion with our purest form and substance.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBubbles emerge from my mouth as I look out and upward toward the night sky, for this is a night dive. My own breath obscures the stars above, and the surface breaks with evidence of my life escaping toward the atmosphere. Suddenly I gasp, and am comforted by familiar air filling my lungs. How can this be? We've come along way as a human race, and we've adapted to breathing underwater. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA lot of my journey and mental energy, even as I paint, has been about student loan debt and how to alleviate the problems it has caused me in my life. Debt is a monster that most Americans find in their closet, and I found myself in this situation after years of living in financial ignorance, with no financial literacy or education. I exchanged my freedom for big college names and a hope for a future where I would be an automatic success. Well, I learned the hard way, that you pay it all back, with interest. Interesting, right? So I've had to learn to breathe underwater. I've had to learn to survive, to make my way, and to thrive, even as I live underwater. My solution to this problem is to find or make beauty wherever I can, and to live wisely from here on out. That's how I choose to breathe underwater. \u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2019-11-06T18:34:33-08:00","created_at":"2019-11-06T20:21:06-08:00","vendor":"DOMKO","type":"Fine Art

The fish do it and I do it, as a diver searching for pearls. Submerse yourself with me. We will all need to learn how to breathe underwater. Soon we will leave the dryness and enter into communion with our purest form and substance.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBubbles emerge from my mouth as I look out and upward toward the night sky, for this is a night dive. My own breath obscures the stars above, and the surface breaks with evidence of my life escaping toward the atmosphere. Suddenly I gasp, and am comforted by familiar air filling my lungs. How can this be? We've come along way as a human race, and we've adapted to breathing underwater. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA lot of my journey and mental energy, even as I paint, has been about student loan debt and how to alleviate the problems it has caused me in my life. Debt is a monster that most Americans find in their closet, and I found myself in this situation after years of living in financial ignorance, with no financial literacy or education. I exchanged my freedom for big college names and a hope for a future where I would be an automatic success. Well, I learned the hard way, that you pay it all back, with interest. Interesting, right? So I've had to learn to breathe underwater. I've had to learn to survive, to make my way, and to thrive, even as I live underwater. My solution to this problem is to find or make beauty wherever I can, and to live wisely from here on out. That's how I choose to breathe underwater. \u003c\/p\u003e"}

Suddenly the sky turned black as the last bit of moon lined up PERFECTLY with the orb of sun. It was night at ten-fifteen in the morning! The stars came out.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003eA cacophony of voices rose from the audience in delight as the moon blackened and a ring of white fire blazed out in a shimmering, radiant crown. Tears came to my eyes as I looked at my family. I got to share this cosmic event with them. There was no time for phones or cameras- I only had 2 minutes to take in the soul blinding beauty with my naked eye. When I looked up at the white light circling the perfect black pit of the moon, it occurred to me that this was not a movie, this was not a human-produced event, and it was the most simple thing in the world. A black dot flew over a yellow dot. Out there. In space. Yet knowing of the sheer cosmic mass of these players felt mind-blowing and unfathomable. God is the best designer, the best artist, and has the coolest ideas.

Burst of Light in the Dark

{"id":4348044935229,"title":"Burst of Light in the Dark","handle":"burst-of-light-in-the-dark","description":"\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e20\" x 24\" Oil on gallery-wrapped canvas, unframed, sides painted dark blue, 2019\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMy goal for this painting was to relate a spiritual experience of adoration before God. The shape of the circle is similar to that of a monstrance which is an ornate, often gilded receptacle for the Holy Eucharist, to be put on display and venerated within.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe gleam of gold oil paint is somewhat soft, and different hues of blue and green are illuminated in soft patches of flowing rhythm. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003eThere is a push and pull in viewing this painting. Depth is created, and one is beckoned to look beyond the surface into the deep blue pools of the universe.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThese abstract, ocean-inspired paintings come from a place of wanting to be one with water.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eImmerse yourself in the peace, wonder, and serenity drawn from real-life experiences of flying forward atop waves, deep dives to rest inside of gentle giant clams, and finding safety inside of coral castles at the edge of the teeming, tropical reef.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI created this collection to find and enter into the spirit of freedom. I experience freedom while playing in water. I let freedom wash over me, as if wiping out in a huge wave--surfboard flying, limbs flinging, lungs burning, mind finding that place of calm in which to wait out the storm. I wanted to feel suspended in the power of creativity, in a timeless tube of grace. I painted using my intuition, instead of having an image or a guide to work from.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eCreating these paintings allowed me to uncover a sense of wonder, and led me to commune with the sensuality of paint and a conversation with my paintings. Sometimes the conversation went deep, sometimes it was playful. Creating in a series allowed me to explore my subject matter in a focused way, centered around the theme of water. I hope you enjoy these works of water; these works of art!\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2019-11-25T12:07:02-08:00","created_at":"2019-11-25T12:48:39-08:00","vendor":"DOMKO Fine Art","type":"Fine

spiritual experience of adoration before God. The shape of the circle is similar to that of a monstrance which is an ornate, often gilded receptacle for the Holy Eucharist, to be put on display and venerated within.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe gleam of gold oil paint is somewhat soft, and different hues of blue and green are illuminated in soft patches of flowing rhythm. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003eThere is a push and pull in viewing this painting. Depth is created, and one is beckoned to look beyond the surface into the deep blue pools of the universe.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThese abstract, ocean-inspired paintings come from a place of wanting to be one with water.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eImmerse yourself in the peace, wonder, and serenity drawn from real-life experiences of flying forward atop waves, deep dives to rest inside of gentle giant clams, and finding safety inside of coral castles at the edge of the teeming, tropical reef.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI created this collection to find and enter into the spirit of freedom. I experience freedom while playing in water. I let freedom wash over me, as if wiping out in a huge wave--surfboard flying, limbs flinging, lungs burning, mind finding that place of calm in which to wait out the storm. I wanted to feel suspended in the power of creativity, in a timeless tube of grace. I painted using my intuition, instead of having an image or a guide to work from.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eCreating these paintings allowed me to uncover a sense of wonder, and led me to commune with the sensuality of paint and a conversation with my paintings. Sometimes the conversation went deep, sometimes it was playful. Creating in a series allowed me to explore my subject matter in a focused way, centered around the theme of water. I hope you enjoy these works of water; these works of art!\u003c\/p\u003e"}
