Well, I'm very grateful,
because this was my first painting lesson, aside from the lessons I
received at a museum in San Francisco, California when I was 4...but
that may not count. My Mother, who studied art and I consider an
artist, wanted to be sure that we were properly exposed to art, and
nurtured our creativity. Thank you, Momma.
I don't yet own an easel.
Why not? I've been waiting for this experience to feel how it is to
stand up for something I am doing. Mostly I sit, which feels a
little...passive. Maybe it is time to stand. Tomorrow I am going to
buy an easel.
Meanwhile, I painted a
few watercolors—three—that are more "craftsy"and less
"fine art." Do I really care? No. I am in my development
stage. I'm learning that sometimes too much "technique"
can interfere with the creativity, because I start to think about
what I am doing. Some of my earlier pieces are lovely, whereas some
of the more recent are more technical and less "from the heart
This last watercolor
piece I call "Love Effervescent" Merriam Webster dictionary
cites the word effervescent as joyously unrestrained. I am feeling a
lot of love these days, from the Divine. And this piece specifically
reminds me of a spiritual experience I had in June, 2009, and again in June, 2014. Yes, there
is so much to learn about love, as it is so effervescent, abundant
and infinite. And how wonderful it is that we have it in our lives. I
wish abundant love for you and yours.
