THE GURU SERIES: FROM THE DARKNESS TO THE LIGHT

Guru Series: Image 1

This 40″x30″ acrylic (2006) is in the collection of Lily Tomlin, Los Angeles, and is part of a lengthy series I did on this theme.  Of my work, she wrote,  “In me, Grace Harwood’s paintings produce a visceral, physical response (a mysterious and compelling reaction).  Her work reminds me of walking in the woods and coming across a deep and hidden waterfall you simply didn’t expect.  You want to stay and refresh your connection with your soul.  These paintings speak to universality, to connection, to depth of heart, to expansion of time, and examination of perception in a way that many of us have looked for so long we had forgotten this is what we had in mind.”

THE GURU SERIES:  FROM THE DARKNESS TO THE LIGHT

38"x24" acrylic

This 38″x24″ acrylic (2005) is in the collection of Felicia and Paul Moore, San Francisco, and is the signature piece of this series, based on the original Sanskrit meaning of “guru,” which is “from the darkness to the light.”  (Mr. Moore saw me carrying a painting up Grant Avenue, Chinatown, and chased me several blocks to my car to insist on a studio visit.
