And I find myself at August's end.
I'm usually fighting tooth and nail to hang on to the feeling of freedom at the end of my summer months, but this late-August night, something is different. I'm preparing for a gentle release of my favorite season.
Last night's painting was a long-overdue sweet release of pent up emotions. A play between bright growing energy and calm surrender. Busy foregrounds, like the life that unfolds before my eyes each day, and in the background a soft soul comes into focus.
There has been much focus on my soul these days. There has been careful balancing of energy and peace...but more on that later.
Spreading paint, making marks, finding forms, welcoming visions, playing with line and shape...I couldn't have planned this. It just needed to come out.
A sweet release on sugarcane.
