Immersed in Lightness (March 2009)

 Immersed in Lightness (March 2009)  I painted this during a Diamond Approach weekend.  I remember painting in white for a long time, so long that a little friend of my son's noted on his 6th or 7th run past my easel: "Mrs. Olson, I don't see what you're painting."

Immersed in Lightness (March 2009)

I painted this during a Diamond Approach weekend.  I remember painting in white for a long time, so long that a little friend of my son's noted on his 6th or 7th run past my easel: "Mrs. Olson, I don't see what you're painting."

The woman slowly comes awake

Awareness rising as wisps

As the blue fissures dissolve the weight

Flowing into rhythm

 

Immersed in golden white

Awed by the exquisitude

Stretched to sheer endlessness

Touched by the light

 

Rising as the crest

Poised as perfection

Emanating me

Gently sighing back into the depths
