I decided to begin a series called “Painted stories from my easel to you” for this month. In this series I will be sometimes sharing the different stages of a painting and other times I will be sharing 3 different paintings in one blog and writing something about them.
Here the first words appear. They are words that are intuitively painted. Words that I hold the intention of during the whole painting process of this particular piece. They come to me as I am about to begin painting. I always start by sending out a prayer of intention, asking for what can be expressed on my canvas. I painted this at the end of 2014, at a time when our minds are looking ahead, desiring new qualities.
Here the image begins to form as I begin painting into the words. The image is still very pale and faint as my senses tune into which colours and shapes are asking to emerge.
The completed piece. As you can see, the colours change as I intuitively feel connected to a certain colour at that point. A specific outcome is never intended. Additional sprigs are added to give the piece a sense of greater freedom. Freedom is something we are always requiring greater levels of. It`s always so exciting to find a way to bring a message into the painting. I really love this part. I was actually in a very quiet mood when I created this piece, so I was quite surprised when it showed up so vibrantly. It just shows what is actually waiting for us.
Our stories all yearn for a life overflowing with a bounty of good and wonderful experiences
Simple abundance begins with a daily act of connection to gratitude. A daily embracing of joy.
Being able to notice the beauty and loveliness of a fresh bunch of flowers in your home, the warmth in someone`s smile, the sound of cheer and laughter, a day that feels peaceful and purposeful, tranquil, reflective time to gather your thoughts …. All these things seem so small and yet when we fill our sense of gratitude with them, we gain a momentum inside of us that starts to feel more and more joyful. The more joy we feel, the lighter we feel and then we begin opening up to bigger levels of abundance. More uplifting experiences begin filling our day.
