Sacred Journey

scared journey
original painting, mixed media collage on canvas 60 cm x 60cm

Creativity is your own sacred journey. One that requires you to go within. It’s about getting to know your true self, allowing yourself time to grow, believing in your own creative abilities, having the courage to put something out there that others aren’t doing and most importantly accepting yourself unconditionally.

""believing in your own creative abilities"" It's a journey! The more I look inside, the more I attempt, the happier I am.

Great work!

Hey Nic - is this a self portrait by any chance ;) I absolutely love it! I read a book last year on resistance and it was amazing - called the War of Art by Stephen Pressfield - a must read for all creatives me thinks... Anyway, my sould feels refreshed and nourished because we've had RAIN!!! I'd almost forgottenwhat it felt like, and to be cold - vunderbar! Loving all your wonderful positivity - just what the doctor ordered, thank you so so much X Donna
