Ever since I was a little girl, I lost track of time when I was drawing or painting. Practicing painting is like practicing to see; paying attention to what is in front of me, the world, and my inner landscape. It is a joyful meditation.
For a long while, I stopped painting, because I became very critical of my work. It took a bit of self-development for me to let go of what I thought art “should be” in my mind. When I did, when I embraced what is true for me, the canvas turned into the place I play with my emotions & my dreams. When I learned to express what I resonated with, I found my heaven on earth again. When I’m painting something I love, I get to dwell in that wonderful energy of what I love about that scene, that energy, or that thing. The more I resonate with it, the more I feel the energy of love amplify.
I hope through my art, you get a glimpse of my inner world. I hope you can connect to your heaven on earth and amplify that beautiful energy you have.
