Dear Creative Heart…Creative Courage
Dear Creative Heart,
I’ve been thinking about you so much lately. Thinking about what I could bring to life on canvas that would bring you color, life, hope.
There are many swirls and spirals in my new work…the spiral is the most frequently found shape in nature. For centuries it has symbolized many things…inner growth, integration, transformation. I’ve been painting with intense color palettes…vivid…and bold colors. I’m not going to apologize for its brightness or for its boldness…it has been growing inside of me for a long time.
And, there are new paintings with words…text…statements about what I believe. It requires creative courage for me to say it…for me to say it on canvas…in bold colors…in abstract shapes…for me to share it with you.
May the work of my hands be a blessing to your heart.
May you find creative courage to make whatever it is that you long to bring forth in the world.
