I can see the light….

..at the end of the proverbial tunnel! I have one blank canvas left to fill. Just in time! My deadline is November 20, so I technically have over two weeks left. There is still work to do once the painting is done, I have to finish and put hangers on. I am finishing them with my usual metal tape, not sure yet if they will be embossed or left plain. Time will tell. Here are a few images of the most recent paintings;

Yin Yang done! :)

I have literally FELT this painting as I painted it. I LIVED this painting while it sat on my easel waiting for me to finish it. It began over a week ago as a flash in my mind, an idea that I just HAD to paint! Those ideas don’t come very often, so when I get that urge, I LISTEN! So, here you have it, “The Yin Yang of Love 2”, the TRUE meaning of expressionism for me. I didn’t create it, it made me birth it! I like to call it Divine inspiration. 🙂

Yin Yang of Love 2

I started a second canvas with the same theme as the last, smaller “Yin Yang of Love”. This one is 12 x 12″ and I changed the color scheme up just a bit too. This is still a work in progress, I’m thinking about adding in some lines and swirls in the background too. So, in the end, this one will look quite a bit different from the first version.

The Yin/Yang of Love

Here is my latest daily journal painting. I painted this one on Saturday and today I’m starting a larger version of this “sketch”. This image bowled me over on Saturday morning, I HAD to paint it right away. Unfortunately, images don’t always come to me that forcefully. Funny how art imitates life sometimes. There has been quite a bit of turmoil around my house the past couple of days, maybe it’s life imitating art in this case, since the painting was done first. Perhaps I had a premonition of what was coming, actually, barreling towards me. Maybe it’s the largest solar storm in years causing the jump in crazy energy around here. It could just be my pms, or maybe I’m finally hitting menopause! LOL! All I know is I am completely drained of all positive energy right now and I’m having a difficult time staying positive and upbeat, which is somewhat unusual for me. I’m usually the one preaching “you are what you think about”. Anyway, this is where my art comes in, it’s always been my therapy. So, today I’m working on a larger version of this painting which has obviously stirred up some emotions that I need to work out or through or whatever. Peace, love and happiness to all! 🙂
