I have spoken a bit about
but perhaps i haven't spoken forthrightly about...
and that is
to say the least
has been a challenge
now that I am painting again
and feeling GOOD about what I am painting
I can admit to you all
This past year
not being able to paint
at least well enough to please my soul
was nothing short of disheartening
devastating is perhaps
as I was contending with other matters
HAND!! oh yeah, two surgeries on my dominant hand.
But 2016 was the year of unfinished paintings.
it's not that i didn't paint
i just never got around to finishing,
and i DID paint some good paintings
truly i did
just feeling a shift
and not knowing where it was leading...
i have learned
to breathe thru these times
trust that in the mystery
the path will unfold
the Light will shine
wait for it...
while I was going thru it
I couldn't admit it to anyone
I felt too much the fraud
but now that I am through it
(holding breath, knocking on wood, praying, praying, praying...)
I can say it
I have been in a deep creative rut
and what has sustained and blessed me throughout
So thank you students
all you talented amazing souls
my loved ones and family
my dearest most precious friends,
those of you who follow my journey here
and have inquired of my absence
as to what was up
You are my Sustaining Angels....
and I am so grateful that I have continued to be led
feels full again.
And now for another silly colorful cat!
acrylic and charcoal
100% recycled heavy paper

I think I have decided, since I am tiptoeing back into blogging and all, that I will reserve each of these 30 pieces and perhaps offer them at the end of the month. Maybe auction? I really don't know. Thanks for bearing with me. At this point just painting and uploading is a BIG THING. I don't want to do anything to thwart my momentum.
I have shied away from social media, too, this past year......so much tooting one's horn out there and I have not had the energy nor motivation to do so. But I do love sharing my process with you.....so, enough talking!!! Time to post!
Be Creative. It's Good for the Soul!
