Recently I have been working through my self criticism.And I was asked to do a commission painting, like the one above.My first reaction was to say that it is not my painting style any more, but I felt drawn to say yes....and to my delight it was an absolute pleasure to create. It was fun and it came easily. And I knew in that moment that I had it all along, and what I was creating was perfect and it was meant to be easy. No more criticism, conscious or unconscious.
"Love is Filling Our Cups" has a wonderful energy to it, and is going to a home that appreciate its essence and meaning. Maybe I'll incorporate some of the techniques I used, maybe I'll paint some more themes along these lines, maybe I won't...but I am acknowledging the wonderful latent creativity that shines within me, knowing the artist within is perfect, as is.
So that has been one of my aha moments over the last week...today is New Moon in Capricorn, and a great time to set intentions and goals.To read some about this New moon check out Lisa Dale-Millers Astrowisdom site.
