Life ebbs and flows, as it should. There is a time for everything and everything has it's time. The past six months have been a time for me to plant my feet on the ground and open up my creativity. Once I allowed myself to do that, once I gave myself permission to paint and silenced all the negative voices, art spewed forth. I was like an artistic drunk at the end of a hard night on the turps; I was almost compulsively vomiting paintings. The tide of art that I had been pushing away for so long was finally allowed to burst forth.
The initial tide has slowed now, and slowly I am settling on a direction. Slowly I am finding a theme, finding something that really makes me want to create. Finding something that I am passionate about and that I want to push as far as it can go.
The need to feverishly finish paintings as quickly as possible to move onto the next idea has gone.
Now is a time to settle in for the long run.
If you've looked at my page, liked Figments & Glimpses on Facebook, followed along a bit of the story, then I would like to take the opportunity now to say a heart-felt Thank You.
I hope you stay with the journey for it's next leg. I am quietly optimistic about it.
