For now I think I will show you some of the paintings I created. You can also look at the pics that Connie at DirtyFootprints Studio posted. Here is the link to see a little bit of what Total Alignment was like.
This first one is about a character that I will be writing about in November, she shape shifts into a raven. I wrote words on the piece to encourage me.
In this piece I attempted to go looser or freer in my approach. I had no preconceived ideas, just kept layering on the paint I loved making this.
At Connie's suggestion I tried to look at a painting in view of my dyeing experience. So I started with warm colors in a stripe pattern. This was vertical at first and I thought it looked like all the scenery of Sedona so I turned it around. I used oil pastel to draw in some of the rocks.
I had a lot of color on my palette so I continued with the same color scheme. I see this as one of Sedona's many vortexes.
This one is still a WIP. I plan to put it back on my painting wall and work in some imagery on their dresses.
This one is my favorite, I so love layering colors and using fun tools to change the way paint looks. Every time I look at this I see something different.
Over and over and it was easy to find all those sweet spots.
I know this guy is watching out for me.
This was my last piece and its a memory painting. When we took one of our walks there was this tree that many of us sat it. It was a special place and I loved creating a painting around it. It is more vibrant in person.
Don't you just love this little me?
This week I started DEEP, Connie's second course in the Fearless Painting Process. Here is my painting table all set up with paint and tools. I plan on using up all this miscellaneous paint I have. Some was given to me and some I bought for one purpose or another and just never used. I am hoping to empty some of these jars during the next month.
This is my first piece, it is 35 X 46, the biggest I have ever painted. We were to think about Joy as we painted, as a result I see a lot imagery of things I like. I see the cup as the cup of life, it holds all those wonderful things in my life. I am not sure where the elephant comes in. I do like elephants and have been drawn to Ganesh lately so that must be it. In intuitive fearless painting you never know what will appear in a painting. I am loving working this way.
