GC Myers- Absorbed in the MomentIt is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.
-Eckhart Tolle


This new painting is a 20″ by 20″ canvas titled Absorbed in the Moment.  This was one of those rare pieces that felt strong from its very beginning all the way through to its completion.  It felt very directed and each piece seemed to fit easily into the painting, adding its own strength.

The progress of this piece very much kept me in the moment as I worked and maybe that is where that sense of awe in the moment that I get from this piece originates.  I know as I worked, I stayed only in the moment.  Setting aside the past and the future, I relished being in that place at that time.  The scene, the colors and the way everything fell together created an inviting and restful –even invigorating — place for my mind to linger.

And that held true even long after its completion.  Every time I look in its direction I sense a feeling of comfort, a great calming effect, in that moment.  The moment taking place on the surface becomes the moment I am living in the present.

It is always in the present moment and the present moment is always in it–that is all I can ask of anything I paint.

This painting will be included at my upcoming show, Part of the Plan, which opens October 29 at the Kada Gallery in Erie, PA.
