Canine Meditation #1 - Beauty For Ashes

Canine Meditation Collection - Meditation #1


"I have learned that I can't run from the pain and discomfort, but rather find the beauty as I walk through them. "


A pillowy cloud. A snowy slope. Pleasant dreams Pile Rain gentles Peace flutters I choose To breathe.

- Priscilla Cash


Last year I began working on a collection of pieces. They became my Canine Meditation Collection, an exploration of serenity and a pursuit of peace. My life is wonderful, packed with so many amazing moments and people.


But it is also hard. My chronic illness is a huge battle. Last year there was new pain, new struggles, new discrimination. This collection is my embracing all the struggles and seeking the beauty in those moments. I have learned that I can't run from the pain and discomfort, but rather find the beauty as I walk through them.


I chose dogs as my subject, partly because I know them best, but also because they have been my closest confidents. They don't judge. They aren't upset by my limitations. They're content to just be with me even if all I can do is nestle down deeper in the blankets.

Here is Canine Meditation #1 - Seiko, my heart dog, was my reference for this piece.
