This painting has been haunting me ever since I started it in December. I’d do a little bit here and there, taking long breaks to free my consciousness and let it flow instead of trying to make it as perfect as I saw it in my mind.
It’s been two months since I’ve touched this canvas and within those two months I learned to “release the need.” This swirl, whether shown in color or black and white, clearly has imperfections. It’s not about hiding the imperfections anymore for me – it’s about translating the colorful energy I have inside into something physical in order to see it from a different perspective.
Doing my work, I feel energy on the inside all day long and it’s kind of nice to see it manifested on the outside for a change. When I work with energy, I don’t try to perfect it – I just let it flow.
Grateful for today’s lesson in unifying internal and external and finally releasing the need 🌀
