funny thing. when i start a piece i never really have an intention in mind. i start with an image of a face. i gather some collage images that pull me. i choose the colours i want to work with. and i let it all go adding one thing at a time. most times i add in a frenzied manner. not really knowing why or where the piece is going to take me. but i just know that when i'm working from 'that place' i go to when i'm in the zone, i just trust and follow my gut. and somehow in the end it all works out.
after many pics along the way, i've just realized what this all means. i love when that happens. when all of a sudden it just all makes sense.
you can't go wrong when you follow your heart and work from that place of authenticity.
i've been having some inner turmoil about my career and how it's conflicting with my soul's purpose. that is to create. to be a full time artist. to work from a dedicated studio. i've managed to lose my way getting lost in a career that although it pays the bills, it leaves me feeling brain dead by the end of the day. when really all i want is to follow my hearts desire and take that 'other' path. the path that i know is my soul's purpose.
more paint, more detail
and....a few more steps to go..
