Right now I am working on how to be of service during these times of great transition. What continues to stick in my mind is Jung's idea that...
"Just as the individual's conscious mind needs to be brought into greater harmony and balance with the countervailing tendencies of the unconscious, so a particular culture needs to readjust its collective perspectives through the agency of myth and symbol. It is the mythmaking artist who discovers the compensatory archetypal image that the age and culture require for greater balance."
So I ponder, as an artist and a myth maker, what I can bring forth that can serve not only my own creative urges, but also the world at large, which is no doubt in need of some balance.

Now that I'm painting again, more will be coming soon...
