A New Dance of Color & Light

Intuitive Acrylic Painting. I am enjoying it so much; making marks and layers … allowing images to emerge … loving the dance of color and fluidity, ideas and movement to flow onto the canvas and learning to trust the process, the choices, the Now.  Here are a few abstract pieces I’ve finished, and a close-up detail of a work-in-progress that’s still on the easel:

With thanks to my dear friend and amazingly talented artist, Susan Moir Mackay, for encouraging me in all creative endeavors (including Life!), and to Flora Bowley for sharing her process and brave intuitive work via her fabulous Bloom True course. So grateful for all the beauty and inspiration and grace and textures and forms and wonder in this wide world of ours—all just waiting to be embraced on canvas! So happy to be a-twirl in line and shape and shades of creative bliss when I’m painting.  And even when I’m not. The process seems to spill over and start painting new perspectives on loving what is in all the layers of day-to-day.  May the joy of whatever you like to do and make and just be with bring you an ongoing source of satisfaction and serendipity, especially in this season of loving generosity and holy (wholly) grace-full and heartfelt spirit.

      Lenna — thanks so much for this wonderful note! I have been continuing to paint … have a group show with 3 artist friends coming up on May 8th called “Finding Joy” — seems an apt title for what I find at the easel! Your own work is so free and beautiful and inspiring and gives me a smile every time I see it! Thanks again for making time to visit here … art hugs back!!
