orange and green hearts in progress, side view
Once again dragging myself back to my easel. I don’t understand why it can be so difficult to get back to doing something I love so much. It seems I always find a distraction. Not this week darnit!
Orange heart in progress, underpainting done!
I recently purchased a nine pack of 6 x 6″ canvases. They are the 1 1/2″ deep canvas I love so much. While opening the package I began to contemplate the way they come packaged. A neat little square of 9 canvases, 3 x 3, all shrinkwrapped nice and pretty. Wouldn’t it be cool to do one piece on the nine different canvases? What do they call that I wonder? Is there a name? Two canvases together to form one painting is called a diptych, three together is called a triptych, so perhaps a niptypch? 🙂 I still haven’t decided if they will be sold as one piece or split into 9 individual paintings that could go together but don’t necessarily HAVE to go together. We’ll see once it’s done and I get a feel for them as a whole.
Green heart in progress, underpainting done!
Anyway, today’s photos are just the beginning. These are two of the nine canvases with their underpainting done, but much more progress to come. Stay tuned for more progress pics coming soon! (After I do a bit more painting that is!)

I paint whether I am inspired or not, (see my post about inspiration) but when inspiration comes out of nowhere in the middle of a painting session……THAT is pure heaven!
Root Chakra, 8 x 8" oil on canvas board, work in progress
This painting was in progress from last week, at the time I called it “Root Chakra” as I have been wanting to do a series of chakra paintings. Well, today, that painting went in a whole new direction! Actually, there isn’t much of the original painting still there, other than the colors. I was over taken by a feeling of pure inspiration and it almost painted itself! I just got out of the way and let it be what it wanted to BE! I am including the before and after photos so you can see the transformation. 🙂

It’s done, and I couldn’t be more pleased! This is the first painting I have been seriously pleased with in a long time. This painting came from a place of deep, true LOVE! The green within the heart represents the heart chakra. This image may end up being the “Love, Pass it on” image instead of the original one. LOVE YOU ALL!!!
