Listening

When I am painting, I am listening and guided by voices and sounds that in split seconds tell me what color to add, what to scrape off. I have to shut my mind down and trust in the process. The way I paint leads me to a tipping point with each piece, because there is so much wet paint and many different colors intereacting at once that if I don’t know when to pull back, I’ve got a canvas full of mud.

I’ve come to believe the creative process is like life. You have to constantly build on your knowledge, expand and enhance your experience. Cultivate the wisdom to know when to push forward, pull back or just retreat. Most importantly have faith and listen to the guidance coming through, if it’s in the light it will never lead you astray.
