78 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 11 - December 17, 19918 Milton painter puts feeling on canvas; exhibit set Dec. 11-12 painted in colors and pigments that only show their intensity and depth under black lights. She likes to use techniques that make the paintings appear three-dimension- al. She wants viewers to be pulled into crevices and voids or to have the impression that'they can climb through clouds to a "Castle in the Sky." "My paintings show my journey through life, the changes along the way," she said. " 'Moon Shower' is in my feminine series that comes from achieving a state of balance with the masculine and feminine that exists in each of us. "A time and space trilogy shows the 'Abyss' of being lost in feelings, 'Break Through' is a tri- umphant exit from the abyss and 'A Star is Born' is the birth of a nebula, an explosion of creation." Hudson said her rural surround- ings help her find the balance that feeds her creativity. She draws on nature and meditation when she feels the inspiration to paint. "I sit on my knees in my sanctu- ary; I become quiet and speak with the Divine One," she said. "I say, 'Please put into my hands what you want on this canvas.' Then I do what I feel." Hudson said that she has stud- ied a variety of holistic techniques including vibration therapy and healing with music. She would eventually like to use her art and natural inclinations to help people work within their own rhythms to find balance and inner harmony. tion.

Using recipes of color and tex- tural ingredients, Lorraine Hud- son creates abstractions that repre- sent the passages of her own life as well as those of humankind and the natural world. Crediti.ng di- vine guidance for her inspiration, she paints in colors that change according to the light and creates designs that are meant to illustrate forces of nature and moods of mankind. Recently, examples of her work were chosen for a volume of "New Art International" which states that the artist "Striving for an enhanced depth of vision and dimensionality on her surfaces, ...sculpts with blade, hand strokes ahd litters the canvas with a silici- fication of reflective particles." "I use whatever I have, paints, oils, emulsions, sand, glass," she explains. "I use dirt, dirt from Se- dona, gem stones. I use so many techniques."

I would like to help peo- ple take the negative in their lives and turn it into positive forces," she said. "I have learned to take the energy and let it flow.
