From the darkness – original painting

I was having an awfully bad day (brought on by a big white envelope) which felt like one of the worse days in the last 10 years (12 years to be more precise)

I took a new canvas, the black color and the big brush. I felt like making it all black; taking it out of my heart and spreading it all onto the canvas.

Then, I just stepped away from it to feel the feelings.

Feelings of hope emerged from deep down inside and they felt like gold and bright white.

“Everything will be alright” I kept telling myself. “It will all be good” “hang on”

I was pleading to God for help. feelings of gratitude that He’s got my back, as always.

It is another rough road I have to walk on and get over with.

My finger with a considerable amount of white paste started frantically drawing roses. Splashes of hope . Splashes of golden light.

It will all be good. We’ve got this.

“We” because I know I am not alone.

Birth of a painting

20160923_104255You know that the paintings have their own life? I do believe they do. You may think of the artists as the tools that choose or are chosen to bring them to life. This might extend to all areas, too but I should not get into this now, because  I really  want to tell you about the birth of a painting that bears the name “Cloud”.

The idea is born in my mind or in my soul (I still have to learn about this process) and I grab a canvas to make it come alive. But during this process, the idea doesn’t like the way my hand draws it and it just flies away.

I  am left standing there, with a dirty canvas, a shattered confidence in my skills and wondering what has happened. It was such a lovely idea! why it looks so bad on my canvas? 20160923_0913391

Well, I let it fly away, because I know I will, at some point, be seeing the idea born to life by other hands, by another artist.

I learned about the travelling ideas in Elizabeth Gilbert’s book “Magic” It is indeed magic and if you are involved in any kind o creative life, this book is a must.

Back to my painting.

Just in the middle of it a rose was born and then another one and then another. I remember thinking how many roses will there be? the whole canvas? a side? they look a bit off standing there in the middle. but the roses kept appearing on my canvas through my brushes, consuming all the red I had (lucky me I had another bottle)

Then an accident occurred and some paint started dripping. Panic. I am quickly grabbing some tissue. No. Wait. It looks good.

Thank you!

Pfiuu. I find myself adding more dripping paint and I am starting to like the new idea that was born through me on my canvas.

Well, hello “Cloud”

Thank you for choosing me to be your mamma!

The painting has the sides painted, too, so no need for framing, but, if preferred, it can be done. This photo is an example of how it might look framed.
