Description Enlightened spirit beings descend from a beam of light, bringing divine knowledge and opportunity. Down below, dolphins playfully leap, while a singular pyramid rises out of the depths. Together they awaken soul memories of ancient civilizations like Atlantis and Lemuria.

Lawrence Neal Katzman, Santa Monica, California Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement I've been a creative spirit for much of my life and I approach virtually everything I do with an artist’s eye. The creative process is a catalyst for personal transformation and this is especially been true when I paint. I often marvel at how it all unfolds. Each painting is quite an adventure.
I like to paint on a black canvas. Colors are so vibrant against black. Before I start I let go of any “conscious ideas” I might have as to what might show up. I let my inspiration and intuition guide the flow. I select a palette of colors and then begin. I am mindful to remain centered in the spirit of play -- if I’m not having fun then it’s either time to stop or take a break. :-)
After playing with the paint, I step back and let the painting “speak” to me. I open my inner eye to the figures and patterns that have appeared. I follow the inspiration of what has emerged and develop the themes while remaining unattached.
At a certain point it becomes clear what wants to come forth. My “inner artist” has revealed his vision and now the work of finishing what’s been started begins. Each painting is a journey unto itself and I hope they are an inspiration for yours....
