The Missing Puzzle Piece
There may be occasions when you find yourself reliving or disturbed by remembering an event
or a decision you were concerned with sometime in the past.
You still have an unsettled feeling that a final solution had never really been reached. You have a strong uneasy sense that something is still missing because you don't have a feeling of closure or peace. As an example, this is not the feeling that comes when you have been working on a jigsaw puzzle and every piece of the puzzle is finally put into its proper place and you feel that sense of fulfillment from seeing the puzzle finally finished.
Enter Abstract Expressionism
This painting relates to such a baffling situation by showing a possible idea for its solution. A more complete picture of what was occuring at the time would have certainly helped. Your unsettled feeling comes from the obvious realization that something is missing. It has now become very evident there should have been, or could have been, or may have been, something more to recognize or do to leave you with a better sense of certainty that your dilemma was finalized with nothing left out,……and so your search for the one indispensable missing piece begins.
In the painting are puzzle pieces floating in a deeply textured basket. They all have the same shape. The sizes and colors are different but their purpose is the same. Every individual piece has a special ability to fit perfectly into the empty space of an unfinished puzzling event needing to be completed or resolved. Once an "idea piece" is selected and inserted it will transform itself into the perfect form and pattern to blend harmoniously with the rest of the picture.
This always available, but often overlooked or not taken seriously, pivitol idea does not necessarily need to be the last piece placed. While working with the deveplopment of an opportunity or a possible conundrum, you can put this particular piece down first. Then you will never have any emptiness to consider. You build the puzzle around it.
This piece, which is always an essential part of any solution, is known as...... loving kindness.
