Here is the one of my recent paintings showing all the layers. What an amazing process I am going through. Of letting go, of finding ME in my work. I felt a little vulnerable, on the edge of something great. A journey of my true expression, breaking free from what I think the work should be, just letting it all flow from inside me.
I met with an old friend yesterday and she said "Isn't it great to be an artist?" And I can't help but think of that now as I compiled all these images together to see the progression.
It's exciting and freeing.
I am trusting myself, and following my intuition.
Where ever the brush takes me, I say yes.
This idea of me being all over the canvas still rings true now.
Today I look at this painting I created, and I feel so overwhelmed with joy and happiness, it brings me to tears. I feel like my true, raw - heart, soul and spirit is here for you see. It's me.
This is the forest of my heart.
Letting go of expectations I have for myself, fears of what others will think is right where I am, and right where I want to be.
