Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Body

Sounds more like an affirmation I know, but that’s the agitation I feel when I need to get back to painting from inside the body and not from the head.

A good, healthy shake-it-up moment when scribbling with ball point pen, painting with fingers and moving all the energy through the body.  A thunderstorm with flashes of lightening. Changes in the internal barometric pressure switch….

This painting probably has alot more to say, but it moving on it’s own volition now, the story will reveal itself to me when the spirits are ready.  Time to go out and beat my hide drum, see what the music can conjure up too.

    The paint looks like it’s guiding you. That must be a wonderful experience. I really like the fresh, bold colors, too.

    This looks as if it has a story to tell and I’m sure you’ll find it soon. I need to get out of my head and into my body more often. Thanks for reminding me.

    Orange, once a hated color, is one that I now embrace! I love the unrestricted flow of your art in this piece, Corrine! Good luck in the draw!

    Love scribble as a base for a lot of layers. That’s working for you.

    love it! You hit the nail on the head, get out of your head. I have been spending to much time plotting and planning. That leads to no fun! I need to scrap my plans and have fun. Eva’s party might pull be out of my funk.
    great art and post once again!

    What vibrant and beautiful colors! Your painting has a wonderful energy. I get tense sometimes when I haven’t done any art in a while, I like your description of it.
