Beating out the sad.

I get into a cycle of shame when I try to beat myself out of sad and into gratitude. Constantly need to relearn that each feeling has its place, and needs to be felt. It can’t be beaten out of me with gratitude.

Painting with lots of colour helps me to keep going. The not-good-enough story is working hard to perpetuate itself today. I need to get under the sun.

I want you to have this painting. Make me an offer. ❤️

Selflove365: Year 4, Day 2 

  

Something new..

  
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted any sort of project. I’m trying something new, telling myself 30 days- that’s how scared I am of it. Want to join me? 

Another one ready to go!

  
Another one is ready to go! ❤️

This is one of my favourites- I had help from two little humans when I began painting it.

The other day, someone said, “It must be hard to let your babies [paintings] go, and I responded that I don’t consider them to be my babies. Once I have created them, I allow them to go out into the world, to become part of someone else’s world; I am not attached to them in a clinging way. The day after this conversation, I read this in Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Big Magic”:
 
“Your creative work is not your baby; if anything, you are its baby. Everything I have ever written has brought me into being. Every project has matured me in a different way. I am who I am today precisely because of what I have made and what it has made me into. Creativity has hand-raised me and forged me into an adult.”
 
However, I do have my favourites – there are some paintings I wish to keep around a little longer, or to be able to visit once in awhile. This is one of them. I feel especially happy about finding a new home for these favourites of mine.
 
1. Today only, send me a message telling me about attachment, and how it has hindered or helped you.
 
2. What is your offer? (Shipping and handling are extra).
 
3. I will contact you tomorrow!
 
“I am Safe”, watercolour and ink on paper, 4″ x 6″, May, 2011.
