This painting is an homage to the powerful healing that occurs when participating in the process of creation. As I painted this, I was going through a grandios energetic shift. I committed to releasing some toxic relationship patterns I witnessed myself repeating. While my heart was tender and my mind worked hard to make sense of it all, I came to this canvas not out of inspiration, but out of commitment to upgrading my mindset, my heart space and my overall vibration. Whatever I go through in life, I know I can come back to the easel to work it out. This painting started out timid, serene, safe (the way I’d been living without admitting it). I had a tranquil idea in my mind of what it would look like, but as I was putting paint to canvas, it just didn’t feel authentic. So I started using bolder colors and larger brush strokes, surrendering to allow some of my anger and frustration to transform into a dance of colors, rather than to try to make something flowy and light in a time when that’s not the energy I was truly in. I see in this painting the courage to change, to boldly be myself and follow my dreams, to get in touch not only with the sun but also the shadows it casts. It represents a full acceptance of what is and a convergence of the many sides of myself finding ways to come together as one. Through the creative process, we cure our hearts, we get in touch with our truth.
