It seems as I clear more of the skeletons and deal with the "stuff" in my life it comes out in my artwork!!!! As I evolve and grow spiritually and intellectually I enjoy painting more and more!!
When I have no idea what to do next in my life I paint and write in my journal. I have these amazing ideas for new shows, studio gallery spaces.
Big plans for the future. I am very fortunate to have some wonderfully talented people in my circle of friends. They don't know it yet but they are all part of my new vision for a interactive studio Gallery space. I consider them to be my marketing managers. My flock of geese. I like the idea of a the V formation the geese fly in. Everyone takes turns being the leader of the group. Because we are all excellent leaders!
But of course, I am getting off topic, I want to share with you my new style of painting. Each piece I have painted this year has ghost like images in the background. Before I start a piece, I actually think about images in my head, and look for things in nature. I am mostly inspired my nature by the way. I love bright colours and I notice things as I am out walking. As I meditate images come to me of what I feel in pictures. Like the roses, a rose is love. I had the feeling I wanted to share with the world how I felt about the universe and all the wonderful people I am surrounded by on a daily basis. I always listen to music and this piece I was listening to love songs, OF COURSE!!! Like Barry White, Al Green and Frank Sinatra!! I will dance and twirl .... look at my painting in progress and see images that must come out. I high light them so they are visible if you look for them. I sometimes don't know when to put the brush down, because I keep seeing more images. This one has at least 10 so far and I am not quite finished.
Stay tuned... for my next blog when I up load the finished piece. How many angels, dancers, horses, girls, and men can you see?
Artistically yours always,
