I’ll be dreaming…

Spontaneous creative combustion….I’ll be dreaming…

I'll be dreaming

I'll be dreaming close up 1

I'll be dreaming close up 2Sometimes the energy of the painting just takes over and it is painting  itself.  I started to work on this piece again last night after letting it languish for a couple of weeks, wasn’t even going to finish it before the Vintage Bazaar, but it kind of took over.  I don’t know if it was because I was tired of working in the studio all day(yes, ALL DAY), which was a total treat, but I was pretty fried.  Two hours later this painting finished itself and when I look at it I can feel the energy rising right out of the painting into the ether.

I am ready for Saturday, writing a checklist and finishing up making sure I have all the little detail stuff in order….but the impetus to continue to work is strong, stronger than ever and I have learned a great deal already in this prep.  I have learned that I am organized, that I can make, make and make some more and that the internal process does take over if you let it.  I feel more joyful and alive than I have in a long time and while I am nervous about doing this “first” show, I am also staying grounded in knowing that no matter what happens I am doing the work I am meant to be doing….what brings me the most heart opening aliveness.  I could paint forever for no one but me(and my furry studio companions)(and the loving and totally one bazillion percent Superhero), but just to paint is the thing….like breathing, like the beat of my heart.

    Like that phrase ‘spontaneous creative combustion’. Pity it doesn’t happen more often for all of us.

    Another great piece, Corrine, full of energy, emotion and, well, just plain electricity! You have worked so hard getting everything ready for the bazaar, I know you will do well. We will be on the Cape Saturday, but returning early Sunday so we can check out your bazaar! So looking forward to it.
