Phase one of the art installation at Nina’s is complete.
The title of this show, Love Is the Answer, is inspired by the questions I have been living.
I am sharing a selection of paintings from the past three years of work. I consider this a celebration and a gateway into the new phase of creation. Before I used art as my own therapy. I would sit, clear my mind and create without planning ahead or having an idea of the end result.
Now, from doing all of this work, I have all of these images of future creations. I will paint intuitively with structure. It will be a different process. It won’t be about me and my minds pictures, it will be the sights in front of my eyes.
I am learning so much through the process of creating and sharing. I really, really love to paint. I also like attempting to put it all out there and not care what others think.
Sharing my art allows me the avenue to practice this, working through the desire to turn the other way. Stepping into that fear and acknowledging, yes this is what I think. No, I am not perfect. Yes, I like to study these things as a way of life. Yes, I like to write about it as well because it helps me figure it out.
So, I share my art. I make more. I do it again. I breathe through it all and in doing this, I make room for you to do your own thing. Make your own Light. Share how you see and feel the world.
I just love it.
I really do.
I enjoy the exchange.
On a side note,
I am pumped to make some mail art with people this month. I will be bringing supplies to share during my frequent visits to Nina’s. You can sit down and create with me, if you feel up to it, hang your mail art on the dream wall and I will post it after the show is over in a mass mailing.
I am curious to see the stacks we will create and where they will go. To track this curiosity, I decided I will make a map.
Also, I am excited for the addition of live music from Beneath the Crow for the Party. Who knows what other surprises are in store? Maybe a rainbow. Definitely chalk. It will be interesting to see.
