Mixed media painting on 11 x 14 inch canvas
Something has shifted in me. It always seems to happen when I have a period of apparent creative drought. It's like I can't see clearly, as though I'm trying to see what to paint through a fog. I actually created some artwork recently that was so bad (to me), I had to cover it immediately with another painting!
And then, suddenly, the fog lifts and my mind is flooded with images that want to be expressed on canvas. Suddenly, all seems to flow again. And the feeling while I paint - extremely satisfying and at the same time wanting more, more, more...
After my last painting (click here to see) my wonderful friend, Renate (Put a little magic in your life) bluntly told me to get out of my own way and cut loose. I am not sure if I am cutting loose entirely, but something certainly has changed and my painting feels unstuck, like it grew wings all of a sudden. Thank you, Renate, for that kick in the behind!!
I'm so grateful that I get to lead a creative life!! And that I get to share it with all of you - that truly is the icing on the cake!
