I spent the afternoon in the studio yesterday creating two small paintings.
I had only one purpose in mind. – To immerse myself in the creative process.
When I began, I didn’t know what I was going to create. I knew I wanted to work on canvas and found 2 8″ x 8″ canvas in my supply room. And that was as much as I knew…
It is perhaps one of the greatest joys of painting for me – tosurrender my thinking to the process of letting appear what is calling to become visible that I cannot see.
To release my ‘thinking mind’ to my body’s knowing that this moment is where beauty, truth, and creativity dance together in balance and harmony.
It is meditative. Soul-enriching. Fulfilling. Peace-inducing.
It is bliss.
To begin, I loosen myself up by dancing. Wild. Slow. Sensual. Fluid. Dance.
Keeping my mind free of ‘thought’, I listen to my body and ask it, “What are you feeling?”
Yesterday, the answer was loud and clear. Connected. Mystical. Whimsical.
Feeling in my body, being present within the moment, hearing the emotions calling for expression, I began to play and paint.
With colour. Texture. Shape. Form. Light. Letting my body be my guide. Letting my emotions flow. Letting my intuition be my muse.
I am so blessed.
Dancing in my studio. Swirling colour onto a canvas. I feel. Everything. And in that everything there is beauty. There is calm. There is LIFE.
I painted in the studio yesterday. In the dance, I found myself falling deeper and deeper into Love with all of Life.
