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. ❤️

Pay What You Want!

Scan 32

It’s #tbt and time to PAY WHAT YOU WANT!

I used to feel there was something missing from my art – the feeling of wild, carefree fun and play. Now I can see that it’s not so much that there was something lacking, but that I just hadn’t tapped into it yet. My older paintings show another side of me: the controlled, organized, methodical nature in me, but I think the colours give a hint to my other parts.

1. Today only, send me a message telling me about how you have changed in the past four years.

2. What is your offer? (Shipping and handling are extra).

3. I will contact you tomorrow!

PAY WHAT YOU WANT!

I continually need to remind myself that just because I this isn’t “serious” art, doesn’t mean it isn’t important. I have so much fun playing with colour. And as my wonderful friend Lindsay Murdoch reminded me, FUN IS IMPORTANT.

1. Today only, send me a message telling me how you have fun, or any other thoughts on fun.

2. What is your offer? (Shipping and handling are extra).

3. I will contact you tomorrow!

I Need To Know If I Am Bad or Good

Yesterday I felt strong, today I feel overwhelmed.
I want support, and I fear I am being too much.
My perception of who I am is cracking and the old me is desperately clinging on, raging, being really nasty.

This painting I completed yesterday has a little of everything: childhood images of safety, recent exploration of sexual healing, proclamations of self-love and windows of vulnerability.
