There’s something magical about spring, when our world reinvents itself. What a gift it is to witness the transformation. I notice my life and work are influenced by this new energy. It feels like a time for change, for growth, for something new to be born.
I want to bring more fearless, freedom of expression to my work. I want to trust my instincts more, and not overthink as I paint, making room for something new to happen. I painted with abandon in this work-in-progress, moving quickly, and letting the work unfold. As I gaze upon it now, it looks like a stranger on my doorstep. Hmmm…who is that? If Louise Bourgeois is right, and “art is a way of recognizing oneself,” then perhaps this is a side of me that I’ve kept unseen…until now.
What’s new for you?
