Finally got serious about color this morning. Mixed up my palette BEFORE I started painting. Sure made things a lot easier! I can't wait to get this finished. It'll be the first floating reflective (back) painting with crystals and I have a feeling it's going to be magical! Fingers are crossed!
Time for a power nap and some admin tasks before our daily hike in the woods, with treats for the horses and dogs, as usual: two horses and 8 dogs yesterday.
Seven months ago, I began making moves to focus on painting full-time - processing, letting go, working on being open to flow.
Two bodies of work, all on small (6x6" to 12" circumference) surfaces, have risen to the surface. Both series speak to personal and generational healing. The figures also reference recovery from addiction and dysfunctional family systems. The landscape paintings are leaning toward creating an awareness of the forest, the earth, as a sacred grove to be revered not commodified. I have yet to balance this out with the nature of art as a priviledged commodity.
It'll be interesting, to me, at least, how all these will develop.
