I’ve been sick for almost a month! Yep, a horrible cold has taken me down. I fought it for the first week but then just surrendered to it and started allowing my body to heal. It’s funny, I struggle with brain fog everyday and having a cold makes it a thousand times worse, but for some reason during this time, I was so sick that my brain shut down and I found myself… well foggy… but also very present. I was in the moment; feeling my body and noticing everything around me. I used this time to read and gain clarity about my life, art and business. It was pretty amazing. I am starting to feel better (finally) and already my mind is starting to race, overthink, worry, doubt my clarity and second guess the beautiful ideas I had during that time. It’s okay though, it is showing me the contrast of the two which is a valuable thing to witness.
This painting was painted on the cusp of feeling better. My work continues to get looser and more soulful. It’s like painting in a dream that I have been dreaming for a lifetime but didn’t know it existed. I feel like I am finally able to touch that thing that I have been searching for so long.
And for you Luna lovers out there. This is the look I get when I am trying to work and am not paying her enough attention. Lol, I love those eyes!!!!
