FIRE COMES TO EARTH































I painted these two pictures at a time when I was exceptionally busy.  Looking at my notes I see that there were several sessions I didn’t have time to write up and my nephew and his friend came to stay in Buddha Garden which took up a lot of time.  I can’t find anything that I wrote about these pictures which is very unusual. 

This picture is about the fire I was feeling in my stomach and belly at this time and all the digestive upsets it was causing me – indigestion, cramps and diarrhoea.  It seemed to be a very airy fire that jumped around inside me.  Imagining it coming down to earth was a way of anchoring it somehow so it didn’t cause so much trouble for my poor digestive system.

It was all part of learning to be still within the movement and energies of life in and around me.
