top left, mad quick journal page… I wanted to do an artist holding a cup… but.. didn't leave enough room on the page.. so.. yeah
top right, her again..(she began as a painting I did as part of a live stream to paint our 'Inner Healer') still going.. she's a bit of a practice piece.. I'm practicing letting go.. bringing back.. letting go.. bringing back… it's not easy.. but I keep telling myself it's a worthwhile exercise in releasing my comfort zone around painting..
to that end.. bottom left.. I've started layering over the top of a painting I did a few years ago.. it didn't sell.. and now i loath it.. so.. under the layers it's going.
and bottom right.. same layering over the top.. decided I'd quite like a white on white on white kind of background.. so.. will have to see how I play on those this week.
Oh… you know that confidence thing… and self belief thing… well… I sometimes have that arise when I put myself out there to teach a workshop or have an exhibtion.. you know.. you 'show up' and hope 'others will come to your party'… well today a lovely lady who had reserved her space at my Gypsy Retreaty Workshop.. actually came to my place and slipped her payment in an envelope under my door. I am so grateful for that action of absolutely belief in me and my offering… its a blessing for me to receive and to give, thanks beautiful Woman for believing in me, I look forward to having a very special two days painting with you. xo
that's it for today,
love Denise x
