Meditation is a personal/private way of prayer to understanding your
soul and purpose. This painting was inspired by one of Joseph
Cambel's statements. He was recalling a time when he experienced the
sun setting and the moon rising at the same time. It is the twilight
time, the time between two worlds, a perfect time to meditate between
the two worlds of the self. exploring the spiritual, quiet, and intuitive self reflected in the water. Trusting all the possibilities
of one's destiny that are revealed during meditation. It is a quiet
and reflective time.
The painting has a very quiet feel to it, because that is where
meditation takes you, but also, that time of the transition of the
sun and the moon, would seem to me, to be a very magical time where
one would get goose bumps and feel anything is possible. It is an
abstract time that is wonderfully visual, where the portal of transformation is possible.
