I’m back in my studio today for the first time in a few weeks, playing with paint. Lately I’ve been incorporating some handwriting into the first few layers of my paintings- I like the way it brings a little of my daily journaling practice into my painting practice.
Something that’s been on my mind and in my heart over the last month is seeking more connectedness with others, letting myself be seen, opening my heart- essentially being REAL. As I was writing on my painting, I was overcome by a sense of connection with, and immense love for, whomever ends up owning this painting. Just because we are sharing this beautiful, mysterious human experience- full of joy and love and pain and struggle.
In the end, most of the words will be covered by more layers of paint. But I’ll know it’s there- this secret love letter to life.
