Who are you when all else is stripped away?

I created this piece during a time when I removed most external stimulation… engaging in the practice of pratyahara, withdrawal of the senses.

After I first created this, I saw…

Flowers intersecting


The elements Earth (green) Air (white) Fire (red) Water (blue)

My mum’s experience… “the green reminds me of nature and plant roots, the blue ocean and the red a beating heart. This painting to me represents humans and nature and how they interact”.

It is interesting to me to have landed on the title ‘Essence’ for this piece.

Essence describes the intrinsic nature of a thing, properties of something without which it would not exist.

We are one with nature… interconnected and integrated. In a cosmic cycle of cause and effect, constantly intertwined.

When we forget this, we can feel lost. But our knowing is so strong if we only listen.

Even our likes, dislikes, what feels right, what doesn’t… all energetic feedback revealing to us our truth.

In this space, there is peace.

And as an overflow from that… freedom.

The question is… how do we stay connected to our essence in a world where we are constantly bombarded with information that can easily pull us away from what we know to be true.

Others opinions, news, societal pressures, expectations, convention, fear based belief systems…

We have to make the choice to continuously come back… and it is a daily practice.

Because we are the only ones that know our own true essence. And the work is bringing that to the table and expressing the unique blueprint that only you have.

And when we are in alignment with ourselves, universe, nature… that is where the magic happens.

My hope is that my artwork can find a home where the collector resonates energetically with the piece.

Essence is available now (20x24in Oil on canvas, $775 CAD) and is a message away if it feels right to you. 🌿

And YOUR essence is available to you anytime. It’s waiting for you to go deep, tune in, align, and act.

This work can be a beautiful source of that reminder 🌀
