Paradigm Shift

One day, while experimenting with my very fluid watercolor methods, an interesting change suddenly developed. Late in the process of creating this painting the lightly colored crust suddenly broke apart to reveal a new world underneath full of flowing colors like a slow-motion Niagara Falls. What had been a two dimensional world suddenly became 3-D. A paradigm shift in one’s experience often feels like this when your whole perception of the world is stretched and changed forever in a grand way. One cannot go back to the old way of seeing once the shift has occurred.
