Marilyn is a wonderful lifelong artist that paints using mixed media and multiple layers, often more than 200-300 or more layers on a single painting. The colors of the paintings change as the light moves through the day and through the layers bringing colors to the surface that one hadn’t noticed before. She often incorporates actual Sedona red earth into her paintings.
Her experience is that art is healing, it has healed her and therefore she hopes that her art can help to heal others. The many layers in her paintings are symbolic to her for the many layers we have as individuals.
“Painting has taught me to trust there is always an answer and the answer is in me. There are no mistakes. Painting has also been the vehicle to connect me with my source. Art is a door to the sacred, to the heart, it is a path, and it is a service. Painting has been a long inner journey and most important is the process and the fruit of the process is sharing it with the world.”
“Colors have come alive for me living here in Sedona. Hiking out in the red rocks on a daily basis, absorbing the beauty into my soul has been an incredible gift of inspiration. The depth of the layers in the textures, color and design of this organic nature is found in my paintings.”
“For me painting is pure joy. Painting allows me the present moment and to move forward.” ~ Marilyn Bos
