"A paradigm is an underlying thought pattern shaping the world in which we live," shares Patrice. "Often we’re not even aware of its presence. Whether we like it or not, our world is currently going through a paradigm shift of epic proportions.
I’m depicting this shift in terms of the complementary colors Orange and Blue. Complementary colors placed side-by-side make one another brighter. When mixed together, they dull one another down and turn to “mud.”
“The Art of Compromise” — my second painting in the “Paradigm Project” explores the use of compromise and patience.
I can see your perspective some of the time and other times I can’t. OR I’ll try it your way, and then maybe try to make it work using the “old ways,” the ways I’ve always done things. “Wishy-Washy”? Maybe.
Sometimes when shifting patterns, we dip a toe in the water to see how it feels. We might quickly withdraw said toe or swim for a while in the new pond. This do-si-do continues while we adjust our ways of being and living. These in-between times call for the Art of Compromise."
