There comes a time, a moment when one simply cannot avoid recognition of integration. All of bounteous Nature, the Nature Spirits, the energetics, buzz, blitz, swim through us at all times, eternally. The imperative is to “Rise Out Of Rest” and participate!

Selecting your image of strength helps you stay in your seat of awareness. As a reminder of your unique internal place, using external symbology creates your sacred living space. Visual images carry a language into the subconscious, they are reference material for our minds, reminding us of our delights and innocent joys. My mission is to offer what may serve you with land and figurative interpretations, as tethers, to dialogue with your own deepest truth.
I am now working with a high-end custom printer. At long last (!) I can offer you quality prints to suit your budget. Giclée printing is the highest quality fine art reproduction available today.
My online Print Portfolio offers a selection of my images. Contact me for other custom sizes and I will send you a quote. Also contact me for a custom print of your favorite piece not yet appearing in the Print Portfolio.

We listen, wherever we are, to chatter or rhythms or fantastic air -mobiles, and all sounds feed us. Neither here nor there, neither wrong or right, sound injects into us and informs us. Our voice, internal or external, influences the environment. This is all a two-way, round-about, give and take, cause and effect. I invite your treasured voice to sing out, your daily stutterings and your daily rejoicings to find their avenues of expression. Why not?
I am re-reading Nick Bantock’s “The Forgetting Room.” The pages are replete with short phrases, rich and deep, relevant to life and art.
One such provocation is the memory of the grandfather guiding the grandson as the lad worked to resolve an issue with his drawing. He applied watercolor wash, yet it looked sugary to him, too nice. From his memory bank, Grandfather speaks:

“Chaos, order, chaos, order recurring …..there is a difference between a study and a painting. Rough up the ground. Then you can begin growing your picture……The result was a mess, though not an unpleasant one. I ‘humphed’ aloud and deserted it to dry by itself.”
Just some insight into a painting process. Now, I am headed into my painting cave! Sending Light! Cherilyn

Each morning gives a moment of applause and a moment of review and unending moments of wonder and wondering. I select “Sage Mother Pushes Dawn” today to show you because of its strength. I love the “held” spheres, the absolute knowing that there is structure for my day, visible or not. I love the colors which were only viewed in the high country as tiny bits of desert hue, yet I wanted them to shout their presence. May the backdrop of your life inform your day, and may you see anew what has always been before you. “Sage Mother Pushes Dawn” is available in the Hoops portfolio at www.CherilynSunRidge.com, always at my modest square inch price and always S&H included. Stay lively!

Jeff Koons has said, “The amazing thing about art is, it can empower. And it has an ability to constantly let people know that everything about them is perfect…Art is an amazing vehicle that really shows there can be no judgment.”
The Muse is afoot and a-flight as I revel in the northwest winter. The La Lluvia show next autumn is already being painted out in my studio. Showing you details of the new “Rain Drop Temple” lets me suggest to any art viewer in any venue, to step back and feel the emotion all the way up from your feet. How do you respond to a piece of art? And then visit the work up close and personal just to see from where the all-encompassing work comes.
