Lions Roar : September 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN SepteMBer 2009 62 Pippens in a Blue Bowl Robert Spellman is a painter for whom mindfulness practice is “a central mode of inquiry,” and his artistic and Buddhist paths have been deeply intertwined. A student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche since the late 1970s, Spellman was appointed director of a center for solitary meditation retreats in the remote, starkly beautiful Huerfano Valley of southern Colorado. He painted landscapes there and ran the center with his wife, artist Joan Anderson. Later he began teaching at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, serving as head of the visual arts department. His work glows with a humble, masterful exploration of form and color, from what he calls “a lifelong practice of looking, seeing, shaping, and honing.” Spellman and Anderson are developing a retreat center for artists in the Huerfano Valley on 240 acres of land they have purchased. Called Mountain Water, it will be a place for artists to practice both meditation and visual and verbal arts. For recent work, see www.robertspellman.com. Robert Spellman
