Daily Painting: Painting with Presence

Daily Painting: Painting with Presence

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of ‘Painting with Presence’.

As you most probably know, I’m very inspired by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle. One of his core concepts is ‘Presence’. A way of being in the world that’s not based on your thinking mind, but on ‘being in the Now’.

In my experience, painting is a beautiful way of consciously entering the Now. Painting is non-verbal, it invites you to connect with your sense organs, and to be completely present in your body.

 

When I’m sucked into thoughts, painting always helps me to ‘reset’, to re-align with my body and a deeper way of being in the world.

 

This is what I made today:

The photo is not completely sharp. It’s again a collage on business card size.

Dear reader,

 

I’ve been in France for two weeks, and I’m back with new and fresh inspiration!

As always, collage making helped me to get back on my saddle!

 

This is what I made the past few days!

This was it for today!

 

Have a beautiful and creative day!

(Somebody very wise said: This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.)

Dear readers,

I wasn’t in a particularly good mood this morning – but painting brought me back to THIS moment – the only moment that exists.

Nothing more, nothing less. Just have fun in the morning with three tiny drops of fluid acrylics and two acrylic markers.

Today, just a small moment out of time, space and mind – to paint. This is made on a scrap of old painting (approximately 8×6 cm).

Bye! Have a beautiful day!
