What are you hungry for?
A blank canvas can be a lot like an empty plate. What you choose to put on your plate/canvas depends a lot on what you like and how hungry you are. Some food/color/texture combinations work better than others. Some combinations can make you downright sick! Knowing what works well for you and your "body of work" is a blend of experience and intuition. The more you know yourself, the better your results will be.
Finding orientation, stability & grounding in the four directions:
East: Air, breath & inspiration
South: Fire, transformation & action
West: Water, feeling & reflection
North: Earth, balance & wisdom
Commissioned paintings infused with Hawaiian seashells to serve as "windows to a happier place". My dear friend is undergoing a score of medical procedures. When she commissioned me to paint her 2 paintings with her favorite colors, I was thrilled. I hope they serve as a welcome refuge for years to come.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
