Painting Time: Letting Myself Get Creative

paintingIt’s been a while. Lots of changes have been going on for me. My painting has had to wait until I could get into my intuitive mind again. Finally today I got some time to work with my paint, brushes and canvas. And finish off some pieces I started last August.

I rediscovered my love for painting about nine years ago. Up until then, although I explored every museum and art gallery I came across, I lacked confidence in my own ability. It was only when my Guides encouraged me to take up psychic art that I found my feet again. And I had been off those creative feet for nearly all of my life. All due to the judgements of an art teacher at school. Yet when I stepped back into painting I felt like I had rediscovered a lost part of myself. It was joyful. Then stressful as I worked to remove the subconscious judgements I had taken on board. Then finally joyful once again. I tried all sorts of art. I even entered my work in a local competition and had some success.

Then, for most of last year, my creativity went into my book. Painting disappeared. Other things also got in the way. Changing my business around. Promoting my book. Starting the next book. With all of the nudges from my Guides that these were what I had to focus my energy on. Until a few weeks ago. I got out my paints and canvas. Placing them in a prominent position I kept walking past them thinking ‘I’ll start tomorrow’. It didn’t quite very mean that I started to paint. Until I arranged with a good friend, artist Kirsten Todd, to visit her. And take my work with me. In the company of such a good friend, and her daughter, I finally got some time to paint again. And I loved it. I’ve fallen back in love with painting once more.

I have completed some of the works I started a while back. Then there are those that still count as a ‘work in progress’. I am sure they will be done on another day soon. Because my passion for art is back too. It connects me directly to my intuition and feelings. The perfect connection for all of my other spiritual work. If you get a little time grab some paint and paper and take yourself off to a creative, intuitive space. You might surprise yourself.
