These thoughts came to me today...thought I'd like to share them:
The day we take our hands off ourselves, and begin to free our minds and hearts from our self-imposed constraints, limitations and ideas about what is right and good in painting, we begin to find the voice of our own authenticity, our own unique expression. When translated into paint, it gives others that same freedom and joy we experienced in creating it. Our work then takes on life and those qualities of 'being' that we are uncovering within ourselves.
I hope my day arrives soon!
