Finding this a few days ago
has shown me the way.
And now my new painting is slowly beginning to take its final shape.
|detail, still a work in progress :)|
My most recent painting, "She, Emerging", sits for now beneath the first painting I had anything to do with. My father painted this ship when I was 3, and I was allowed to paint a tiny bit on the bottom right corner. I'll never forget the wonderful feeling that painting those first few strokes gave me. But having an artist father was both a blessing and a curse. I didn't throw myself into art the way I truly wanted to until just recently, when I finally I rid myself of years of negative "stuff".
It's funny how things happen, and people cross your path, at just the right time.
Yesterday, I found the most amazing documentary online, and I thought some of you might be interested in watching it, too. It's a bit long, 83 minutes, but it's something I could watch again and again. There is so much wisdom in this film. It's about an amazing woman, Marion Woodman, who reminds me a great deal of Joseph Campbell, whose work I'm studying right now, too.
She's the kind of woman I'd like to be someday, the kind of woman I'd like to listen to and talk with for hours and hours. Here's the link to the documentary:
and a link to a site about the documentary:
I hope you enjoy it, too. Let me know if you watch it, OK?
My apologies for not being around to comment and interact with everyone as much as I'd like to. I'm so wrapped up in LIFE right now, learning new things and developing *my* own art, that time is short sometimes. But I'll stop by whenever I can.
Love and hugs,
