Welcome. It is my pleasure to share my Meditation and Serenity Art with you.
My studio is a sacred space for me, a serene sanctuary. It is where I call upon Spirit, asking to be guided. My intent is to enter a state of relaxed receptivity. Then I can allow Spirit to use my heart and hands in a process of co-creation.
My passion is to meld my inner life with my art into one harmonious whole. The art images offered on this site reflect this personal goal.
When I was seeking serenity after a divorce, I was inspired to create my first Serenity Sister icon. Others soon followed, forming a diverse community of Sisters. Later, male siblings called the Buddha Brothers were added to the community. Both the sisters and the brothers speak to the universal pull we all have to be serene and peaceful. Each one has a Spirit infused presence that can transform a home or office into a serene oasis.
Mandalas are another treasured way for me to create art that is infused with serene power. I use the Mandala to bring together the energies of Spirit and nature. Bringing the two into a harmonious dance creates a calm beauty. They invoke a sense of tranquil mystery that facilitates entering one's inner stillness.
Possibly the most challenging way for me to express myself is in the unstructured form of an Abstract painting. Without a doubt, it requires me to drop my judgments and inhibitions. If I give myself permission to simply enter a state of child-like play, magic can happen. Having no preconceived idea of what should manifest, a diverse array of colors, shapes, textures, and materials can come together harmoniously. My joy of going with the creative flow shines through in the resulting composition. For me, the abstracts are a reminder that connecting with Spirit can be a lighthearted, playful process. Serenity does not mean seriousness.
I believe everybody has the potential to lead a peaceful, serene life. My intent is to support your search for serenity with my art.
"I was looking for a piece to put in my office that would help me relieve the pressure that I sometimes feel from my job. When I walked into Goldenstein Gallery ,Gloria's work jumped out at me.There is a sense of serenity in Gloria's work that I find calming, somewhat like meditating."
