"I observe the world and respond to it through endless plays of line, shape, color, and pattern - a language all it's own. I ponder the origins of matter. I marvel at nature, and I contemplate timespace. I paint to realize a truer sense of self. For a mindful dance with source energy. With creation itself, conciousness manifest as being." - John Paul Schafer
