Meditation and Art
by Sonia Roseval
My experience with art and meditation runs parallel.
The more I meditate, the more the expression of art has a deeper meaning.
The very action that I take when painting becomes a form of meditation.
What I feel, I am able to easily and freely without any barriors, manifest onto my canvas.
Any color I choose, be it just one or many, reinforces my intensity or translates my emotions onto the canvas, thus producing an inner landscape.
How it is viewed by others is personal ; however, it is meant to convey the more positive aspect of creation.
The regularity of meditation is a conduit for my work to improve and become more meaningful. That is the least I could say.
For me , painting is not just to reach a certain status within its realm, but it is to connect me to a higher and more fulfilling reality.
My art is not a means of recognition but a way to my life.
What I discovered is that what stagnates cannot eternally be. There is action within inaction.
Everything is ultimately about the beauty of becoming.
