Awareness Portrait, acrylic on paper, 10 by 10 in. Emilia Kallock 2018. This portrait illustrates how my thought process works when I am conscious of which thoughts I want to expand. I liken it to a frenzy of shooting stars, some of which I will select to expand upon- represented by the two large eye stars. This phenomenon arises from the many mindfulness practices I’ve studied as if late, including works by Sri Chinmoy, Megan Sillito, and Access Consciousnesses methodology among others.
