This Website features Russell Bradley’s latest Work. Well really I started painting again in 2013, and had to learn how to paint again ,I had get back what i had taken for granted and it has taken 5 years . The Plien Air painting really helped get my eye back standing out side in the Spanish Sun is Both wonderful and exhausting as my Brain slowly melts and i start to trip out on the intensity of the light. The Colors become changed by the experience.
Here is an exert from a book I am writing called Seeing Which is where i find this self at present.
“Close your eyes , feel your emotional response, . There is nothing to explain and nothing to defend .
everything you are doing is what you are doing ! THE FORCES YOU CREATE within you, make their way in to the world and establish the order of your life. This itself is what you awaken too.
The imagination is directly connected to mental stability and emotional fulfillment. Beauty is the path , seek beauty to penetrate the core of uncertainty remind yourself of it everyday.
Paint what you see, you will understand how little you do see in the process, it is only when you change inside that the ability to see widens.
By observing how much emotional suffering you cause yourself, describe a situation in which you are not a subject to your own reactions, because they control you!
There is no difference to what claims the energy ,it is what the energy is converted in to. How it is colored by individual experience creates the patterns of experience which repeat themselves .”
