Join Me on My Painting Journey

 I've been on a painting journey and I wanted to bring you along for the ride. 

 The beginning stages of a painting for me are so fun. It is freeing to splash the paint around and play.

 Adding darkness and shapes.

 Being drawn to more color is always exciting. 

I've been loving all things turquoise lately so it is no surprise it showed up. 

 The energy is rising. 

 Typically for me there is a point in every painting where I absolutely hate it. This is the beginning of this stage here. 

 I brought in some pinks and it feels better. 

 Playing with the darkness on the left. 

 There was a need for softness. My soul was calling out for softness and light.

 Frustration has come over me and I know I need to paint through it. I don't want to but I know I have to. 

 These horrible faces appear and I didn't even want to give them mouths but I knew they had something to say. 

 They had so many lessons to teach me. I am so grateful I gave them mouths. :o) I was called to transform them.

This is the final piece. It feels so good to me because of the journey it took me on and the healing I experienced on that journey. 

It doesn't hurt that I was able to paint out in my screen room, overlooking the green grass and listening to the birds chirp. 

Or that I was kept company by my sweet little puppy Elly.
