Experience the wholeness in the space between.
I painted "Between Two Trees" out in our maple woods – The Sugar Bush. The tree on the left has a tree deck I built for Allen and his friends. The two trees are playfully reaching out and touching each other even as one of the tree's dead branch lies on the ground between them. I'm not sure is "negative" space is the best term to use, but it does explain why many people don’t notice it even though it’s all around them. Looking at negative space in a painting became second nature to me shortly after my teacher suggested 35 years ago that I draw the space around the chair. Absence is implied, yet, there is a whole lot to see in the spaces between.
I’ve used this technique in art to get beyond what my mind says it is looking at so that I can see more of the picture and open up to what else might actually be there. My practice took on new meaning when a teacher suggested 15 years ago that I question every belief I have about people I want to blame or an upset that I feel about a situation. Following the suggestion has given me awareness of the space between my beliefs and it is quite full of life when my thoughts become still. Have you experienced the fullness of this space?
