"Letting it go"
on 16" x 20" wrapped canvas
Most of my paintings are autobiographical. They tell the story of where I am or what I'm thinking at the time I'm painting them. But the wonderful thing about art is that anyone else who sees it can see something completely different in it. And what that person sees is absolutely correct, too, for them.
I've been thinking a lot recently about how important it is to let go of things that hold you back. Things that no longer serve the purpose of moving you forward so you can live your best life. Old ideas that no longer apply. Negative feelings and those self-limiting words you tell yourself. Words others tell you. Words of fear and doubt. Things like that. You get the idea.
“All the art of living
lies in a fine mingling of letting go
and holding on.”
It finally feels like Spring here today, so I'm going to spend as much time as I can outside. This is my favorite time of the year, and I'm eager to get some new things planted in the garden. Color! I need color! :)
