Shaking It Off
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
The subject of this acrylic on stretched canvas is a heart that has something to shake off and does so in a display of wildly flung colors. Sometimes when it seems your heart is broken, it may only be a case where the heart is in need of shaking the hurt off and moving on. The choice between having a broken heart or simply one where new baggage is shaken off and removed from the heart may not be an easy choice to make but it is often the best choice. The removal of the various colors shaken from the polluted heart will leave the actual color of green.
The color green is generally associated with the heart chakra- the spiritual or energy center in the body where love resides and maintains its unique vibrations thought to be the color green..
For the wildly flung colors as well as the smooth coloring of the heart, I used a spatula-like instrument previously used to apply the icing to a cake as my brush of choice. It was my first time to use such a tool. I started with the different colors generously applied to the canvas. I then used this spatula-like tool to spread the colors and to fling the colors around. I started this process with no preconceived idea of what was to be created. I simply began swirling and flinging colors to the delight of my inner child. Until I took a defining couple of swirls leaving me with a plausible heart shape and realized that the flung colors seemed to be leaping from or being shaken off the heart.
