I am in a painting mood and at LONG LAST i did something today that frankly just scared the heebiecreebies out of me: Being vulnerable enough to add paintings to my iheartstudio.ca shop. eeeekkkk. I have no idea why it’s such a big deal for me. Maybe becuase Painting is so personal for me. I have been painting for 23 years (not all the time… but still) and I have never ever sold one of my paintings. I discovered the love for it about 18 months ago and have been painting often… and at long last it feels like I have gotten my voice and the paintings feels like me. I am so happy and so in love with these. And all at the same time I really don’t want to sell them at all. I think that’s a good place to be. 🙂 So, they are in my shop over at www.iheartstudio.ca!! (!!) I am going to leave them up and maybe someone will love them enough to buy them. And if they do not sell, I will keep on enjoying them right here in my studio. So basically it’s a win-win right?
I love flowers. I LOVE it. Everyone who knows me well, knows that I almost always have flowers in my home. When I started painting again I had a mayor AHA moment in painting flowers. It was like two worlds collided and made my heart whole. And then one day I painted a Psalm on the background and painted flowers over that so that the scripture is not really readable and you cannot follow what’s written unless you know it. And for some reason that made me love it so much more. I love the idea of the wisdom of the verse being there for all eternity. It speaks all the time even though you don’t see it or realize it. LOVE. And so Psalm Paintings was born. I hope I can paint the whole of Psalms in my lifetime. yes.
I will not have a vulnerability hangover and take this post down. I WILL NOT.
See you on the interwebs my friends!
