'EMERGENCE' - West Seattle Artwalk

Emergence

1560s, from Middle French émerger, from Latin emergere "rise out or up, bring forth, bring to light," from ex- "out" (see ex-) + mergere "to dip, sink" (see merge). The notion is of rising from a liquid by virtue of buoyancy. Related: Emerged; emerging. 

 - thesaurus.com

Expanding on the visual vocabulary which is based on images from nature, I am exploring the notion of emerging from a deep nesting and resting phase. The procession from a deep, dark nurturing place of stillness brings forth images of a colorful spring and summer. Like walking, perhaps dancing, through the garden on a warm summers day, this rising up - or bringing to light that which was buried - feels full, warm and sweetly fragrant.

Painting this series has reminded me that while I somehow feel separated from, we are actually deeply connected and an integral part of nature. 

This simple truth has brought me great peace and joy.
