My journey towards becoming an artist - Part 3
It took me a while to realize that my guides were once again supporting me and helping me with each artistic creation. The joy that I was filled with, was similar to the joy I had always felt when I was working with my groups of students—only this time it was more private and personal. Spirit comes through me and guides me as I create. People have told me that when they see a painting of mine, it calls to them, almost as if it was made for them. I believe that this is true. I believe that these paintings are created to help people on their journeys….to inspire them…encourage them…and support them. The guides that helped me could be their guides working together with my guides. But what is dramatic to me is how many people feel drawn to a painting and feel the pull to have it be in their homes and lives. Here is what a recent purchaser wrote:
“Your paintings are full of texture, colour, life and energy. Different ones seem to speak directly to my soul … some are very free, abandoned; some are powerful and brave; some are tender; some are spiritually emergent. I love looking at them and seeing which ones speak to me at that moment in time – which ones vibrate what kinds of energy within me.”
It has been since 2014 that I’ve stepped into the role of artist. I am delighted to find myself here. I am still working part time as a psychotherapy trainer of Psychodramatic Bodywork®. It has been a long and fascinating journey to this place of balance that I am in now. I look forward to seeing how this continues to unfold. I am happy to share this with you in these blogs.
Here are three of my earliest paintings that are still some of my favourites today: Dancing Threads, Triumph of Passion, The Wizard. Although I have been very prolific and completed over 250 paintings since, these first paintings are very special to me and they continue to inspire me as I paint.
