A Painter & Light


Pauline E. Reif


To see light in the moment

to enter this light

let go of your mooring

in a moment of love,

this is surrender only to love

and its wild arc of unexpectedness,

to see, to see and see how

light touches everything

one way or another,

to revel in its changing

forms, colors, moods,

to raise the sail

lift the anchor of

this is how it always is

like breath blowing

through white sails

like sky

 like love.

It is my joy and privilege to share these images and words from my heart to yours, each one born from the hearth of my heart where I have come home to with great joy, love, and deep gratitude. May we each follow the light home to our deepest belonging.

“ADDITIONAL COPY TO COME All Landscapes are within me. There is room for everything.

 Etty Hillesum


The Earth speaks through color, light, shade, all forms of water, land, sky, and creatures, all alive and filled with energy. Within each landscape I paint, I receive and share the gift of wearing Earth as Divine ever more deeply into and through my soul and body.
