Despite the bills and annoying errands I had today, I came back to the studio open enough to do some good work. My hands are messy with paint, and this satisfies me somehow. All in a good day’s work.
I’m relishing exploring freedom with the paints. Occasionally going abstract feeds my soul. It loosens my grip as I embrace rhythm and movement.
Best of all is the emotion! I can see the emotions on the canvas. For example, this mini-painting above comes from a place of self-love, tenderness, and self-care. Going inside. Introspection.
This next one is about getting out. Out of my head, fears, and monkey mind. Seeing that blue sky and feeling the fresh air….
Those first two loosened me up enough to shakes off my struggles from the week, to come fresh to this next piece… sheer delight and joy…
I think they’d make a great triptych for someone’s wall, in the same frame or separate ones. Life, movement, rhythm, color… there’s so much emotion here! I’m a little bit in love with these gems.
