Painting my journey

Yesterday was my very first solo art show opening! I have the pleasure of being the artist for November and December at Mending Roots Wellness Center in Camp Hill Pa.
The opening reception was perfect, with lots of love, light and laughter. Thank you everyone for coming and sharing your time with me and my art ❤
A few months ago, Tami at Mending Roots Wellness Center contacted me about being their artist for November and December. I had been meditating on having an art showing since the beginning of this year. I knew that it would happen when the time was right… so as soon as she messaged me I knew it was time.
This year my paintings have evolved into a style!
As an artist, I have been looking for my style to come through my work. Being a creator in many ways, I’ve always felt like I’ve lacked that thing that made me a “real” artist. Seeing other artists having their specific style, I wondered and put much energy into uncovering my own.
Intuitive painting is a way to tap into yourself and create a masterpiece.  It’s about meditating and centering yourself in order to better hear what’s calling you, what you desire.  The colors and placement of images comes from a feeling, trusting myself to let go and create what’s inside of me. It’s been a beautiful process for not only the growth of my art, but for my own personal and spiritual growth. It has helped me to be more intune with myself.
I started this journey through the lotus flower, and the buddha. Creating paintings as full moon meditations, and connecting with my intuition through breathing practices has really helped my art unfold in a deeper way. The layers evolve and create a depth that can be felt. It holds the energy within and makes the painting alive.
As my journey continued, I started becoming more aware of the animals around me. Seeing a Blue Heron every day in August and September taught me patience, persistence, and acceptance of my leadership role.  Becoming more in tune with my native heritage, I realized the power of the Turtle, carrying the weight of man on her back. Aligning with my inner consciousness and seeing the world from a new perspective, the Water Dragon came to life. Finding knowledge and wisdom within, the Owl shows me we are all the gatekeepers of our own knowledge. The Elk shows me how to stand strong in my power, and how to persevere. The Buffalo brings the vision of promise, ancient wisdom and abundance.

 

I am looking forward to what the universe has in store for the next set of paintings. ❤
