painting in progress
This is just a small piece of a larger painting I am creating for a commission piece. What a journey this piece has been and I can't wait to show it to you. I have to tell you something very exciting, but I have to start in the beginning. In the beginning of this blogging/painting journey I really had to wrestle with my gremlins (nasty little voices with very negative unpleasant commentary) every time I put brush to canvas they would start in on me. If you been following with me on this journey I wrote about it over and over again. Those little gremlins are quite creative little buggers, I'll give 'em that. Trying this angle or that angle trying to get me to put that brush down and trying to make me feel like s__t.
But alas, I persevered and just kept painting!! I noticed today they are rather silent and as I thought about it, I realized they have been silent for quite a while. I have been totally absorbed in the act of painting and being totally present in the now of it all. It is a very wonderful place to be. I'm not quite sure how I did it, but I know it involved lots of doing without a lot of thinking.
