This is one fish out of my lastest painting. I scanned it in and cutout the background. The act of creating these intricate designs is very meditative for me. I've mentioned earlier that I paint after the day is done and I'm settled in bed. Well, this is the time I pray and try to review the day and analyse what I did right and what I could do better. This process along with remembering the stories and places I'm painting create my own "dreamtime." Not the high stress waking hours, not yet carefree sleeping: somewhere between. Time goes faster, or slower as I focus on my work. I can sense the difference. My right brain, creative side, takes over. It is a hum.
