What Do I Paint Next Year?

The question is not what am I going to paint next year.....the question is what am I going to paint with? Am I going to be passionate or just continue to paint because I want to.... We always need to do the things we love the most with all the passion our soul can give. We need to leave it all out on the canvas. We need to always live in the present and leave all the sadness behind. Creating artwork with passion. If you have sadness in your heart leave it on the canvas. Healing through art is so liberating. Do not deny what you want to create in that state of mind. We all have to go through the pain....sometimes we create amazing things when we are feeling pain. But make sure to create and leave it there. Do not create in pain continuing to feel the pain.

I have been told art is therapy and there are behavioral science practices to give art therapy to patients. It works. In my humble opinion when we tap into our soul and let the joy come out through our art that is instant healing. When we talk to our soul we are healing. Our soul is powerful. That inner energy we tap into is amazing. When we are stressed out we do not rely on our subconscious or essence to take care of the problem.... we try and think our way out of things from the exterior. We are filled with voices and ideas from outer things. We forget to quiet our minds and look within for the answers. Say what you want about this theory. Don't read this if you don't agree. Log off of my blog. But I know, I have seen and experienced this phenomena first hand.

Create from your soul. Quiet your mind! Create amazing pieces and turn your pain to an Art gain! I know that was cheesy.

What Do I Name My Art?

The Name! What do I call my painting? Everyone wants to have a name to everything. Sometimes I will  create a piece and I do not have a name or a reason I painted it. I just let it flow from the first line.  

Recently I started to paint a group of pieces and I am inspired from the last piece. I have a name to the series but the individual pieces do not have a uniqueness about them, as a body of work they are classified under the series name. In that respect I guess I could get away with not having a name. Does anyone reading this come across or experience that? 

I used to worry about what everyone says about what I am doing or creating. I always wanted to be the people pleaser and in the process so created some horrible stuff. Or stuff that I did not enjoy. Funny how the stuff I enjoy making doesn't have a name and I let it flow, the stuff I created to impress and fill walls up for a show in the past was created very carefully thinking of who is looking and the subject matter was boring and the painting did not flow. I did not feel genuine. Creating work that way is forced. 

I have also learned the economics of the art world you have to sacrifice a little of your comfort level to make a sale. Of course this is my opinion. You don't have to agree. I don't care if you like it. But if you can relate I will be so happy I could help! 

I Love Painting and I am Back!!!

If anyone is still following me that is subscribed I am back and I am so excited to let everyone know I have been painting and happy about it! I hope to share all of my journey with everyone again. It is a wonderful and I am still alive to work on my legacy to leave my children. A legacy filled with happiness and ART.
