Besides painting, painting and more
glorious painting, a significant portion
of our time at Creative Juices Arts was
spent in meditation, body movement,
connection exercises with each other and
shifting our focus.
Keeping our gaze
inside and at the same
time looking outside at
what was around us.
The meditation moved many of my paintings
to the forefront and I saw them as whole images
ready to go on the paper, yet they morphed
as my body became the instrument and my critical
mind faded away.
There was a good deal of moving forward and
retreat as if being big was too big or somehow
wrong or not acceptable. One of the lessons
that I learned and that I gave to myself was
“Permission to be Sparkly”
It was a gift I need to receive and it helped move me
outside and keep going forward.
Just remember you are all sparkly too!
