the business of painting is becoming a frenzy. i have a goal to complete 24 by june, and i have varnished three so far. yikes! i do believe it can happen. i'm really enjoying my process-i feel really fearless when i face the canvas, a new thing for me. i'm just workin.
when i went back to school a few years ago, in the end to get my degree in fine art, i was of the belief that my work could not be validated without a degree, proving that i had some training in composition, color theory, et al. and i thought that i would also teach (you know, to fall back on) because i had no idea what i would do once i got the damn degree.
i met with my friend maggie in december, who does this amazing healing work that involves muscle testing your truths...i know! crazy, huh? well, i offered to be a guinea pig as my two other dears watched-the statement i gave was "without my degree i cannot do the work i am meant to do". she asked me how true the statement was on a scale of 1-10 with ten being really true. i think my answer was eight... so she worked quickly to reverse this belief, did a little clearing and then asked me again. i truly felt, not because i had changed my mind about the thing, but i truly felt like this wasn't true anymore.
just like me, i went on and forgot about it. until yesterday. i realized that the plaguing, heavy, dark, sinking, burdensome feeling of needing to rush back to school to finish the monster under the bed was not there. in fact, i had not thought about it since.....WAIT A MINUTE!!? since december???? wtf?
so i'm turning this over, you see. just one of the many little colored threads in my consiousness.
this week i am working with:
*Bear-for strength, major unearthing in order to tune into that psychic glitter that helps me express myself. *Dolomite-for eliminating confusion-getting clear.
LOVING the processes of these lovelies:
sending you a hunk of earthy red modeling clay to press your unique thumbprint into, leaving your magic mark on the world, because i am waiting to see what you've got, i know it will be jsut marvelous...
