My new painting has the longest name ever! But when I tried to rename it especially to make it easier for Sam at Late September (who is the poor person who has to say the name when anyone enquires about it) I just couldn't. From very early on in the painting process this became it's name without any doing of mine.
Angels Have Wings Because They Are Not Afraid To Fly
The idea of flight and believing in yourself is such an exciting prospect. Fear stops a lot of us from doing many things. It is often the fear of failure that prevents us from living true to who we are. Fear also gets in the way of creativity too, being fearful of making mistakes or creating something from within your very being that may not be accepted or liked by others. I don't believe in being fearless, this quite often comes with risky choices or dangerous outcomes but to step into your fear, acknowledge it and walk through it carefully to the other side, reaps such great rewards. I'm quite taken by the idea that Angels own their wings, were given them because they always had faith in knowing how to use them. What beautiful things were you given that you are not afraid to take flight with?
My new painting can be found at the lovely Sam's at Late September in Glenbrook.
Prints of my paining can be found in my Redbubble shop.

I am very happy that I have finished another painting. I had hoped to evoke new imagery but another lady appeared, unintentionally. I was mentioning this to a dear friend of mine and she said "Maybe you are creating a tribe". I loved that idea and so "Dream Tribe" was born. Filled with symbols and shapes depicting strength, unity and spirituality this dream scape is bound to the mountains tomorrow to the beautiful shop Late September. If you would like a print of her, have a look at my Redbubble shop where you can find Dream Tribe on all my products.
I am not going to tell tales, yes it is really hard to start a new painting. It is even harder to keep going once I have started, I am a bit of a procrastinator. But once I do find my groove the only thing that stops me are all the other "life" things that I am committed too, my beautiful children, study, husband, work, domestics.........
I never know how long my paintings will take but it is nice to know that at least there is one on the easel to touch base with. Painting helps me to find my equilibrium, my centre. I can guarantee you that this will not look the same at the end of the processes, it always astounds me how quickly a painting transforms especially when you just let it happen. It is a mystery to me where they come from. I hope you all find a chance to do something creative today.
