Besides being a lazy Tarot card reader (no posts since September??? Aaargh...) I'm a painter and glass artist. I sell my art online, in galleries and do a couple of studio shows annually, and often use a process called "intuitive painting."
Currently I'm participating in a 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge and chose this painting to share today because it really embodies the process I use when creating. I call this piece "A Golden Opportunity" because you never know when such an opportunity is right around the corner, just waiting for you to accept.
Intuitive painting has a way of opening your mind to seeing and feeling things differently than before. Letting go and painting without rules and total abandonment lets your Inner Child loose and you find it's not the end result that matters most; it's the journey along the way. The messages floating through your thoughts while creating a piece are often gems of wisdom and insight you would normally not acknowledge in a conscious state.
While painting this piece, I received a brilliant insight and solution to a work-related issue that I'm confident will resolve the problem seamlessly while being a win-win for all involved. It's a 180 degree turnabout to how I had planned on handling the situation initially, while being the most compassionate and equally as effective.
This painting has metallic gold that's hard to photograph but makes a perfect ending to the "message received" painting session. A golden gem of insight that was right in front of my nose, but I wasn't open to receiving until I let my mind wander through the process of making art. What a blessing in so many ways!
