Traveling Together on the Journey

Over and over, I paint this space because it is loaded with significance. My art making is very much about reconnecting with all the things that happened in this space, and it’s deeply meaningful for me. I am in spiritual limbo: painting the “Space Between” what once was and now is. I am floating in the “Space Between.”

Floating in the “Space Between” is a stop on my journey. I need to spend time here. I’m not stuck in a way that’s unhealthy. What’s so wrong about going back in time and visiting a place that you’re happy to be in? If my paintings let me do that, I’ve just taken a little journey and I’ll be back to the present soon enough!

How does your creative practice help you on your journey? Does it let you go places you couldn’t otherwise go? Maybe you won’t share your answer here, but I hope the question makes you think about your own journey and the ways that art makes that journey richer and more meaningful. Consider that in spite of the fact that we don’t even know each other, we will be traveling together on this journey. We do this through the simple act of choosing to go where our canvas takes us. Onward!

Space Between, 2019

Tears for Dancing, Age 42 

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven. Until then, I'm going to paint, I'm going to write, and I'm going to share when I find hope in this life. That's why I'm here at Journey on Canvas.
