It feels like it's been a really long time since I've completed any new paintings....Today, however, I finished three! (I will share them over the next few days!) It felt wonderful to paint again. I am yet again, invigorated and refreshed by the incredible healing power of the creative process...
This piece is called "Fearless Warrior" and I created it as an affirmation:
I am a fearless warrior, steady and committed to my path.
I am rooted and connected to my source and pulling and pooling all that I can into the core of my being. From that place, I can think and soar. From that place I extend back down through my feet, like an affirmation that says, ‘I am Here and I belong’. I exist on this sacred ground. From the core, I also shimmer upward and outward, beyond the periphery of my outer most limits of body. I am more than body, I am also earth and sky and the line between where I end and they begin is not as much line as it is light that blurs and bends. I am grounded and strong and yet soft and limitless, both light and dark, and I am holding both with my heart open. I lead my life from there and I engage the world, others, my challenges and successes with this same grounded-ness, this same softness. In this way,
I am completely free.
