A painting with Amor Amor

Do you know that feeling of complete “I don’t know what I’m doing”.  That’s the feeling I have every time I start a new panting.  What helps me? “Break” a white canvas with words, scribbles or marks.  And then, just like that, transform them.

Yes, transform them, not destroy them.  Sometimes we get attached, we won’t let go…ideas, feelings, actions, methods…but you know what? How can we grow if we don’t learn to transform?


The simple action of changing, making something new, change your point of view, ect…will make you grow, transform.

Here you can see the steps of my painting process…the transformation of a painting.

I like to think, that with every move, I lived a little more adventurer, I grew, I learned to just be.

This painting had many steps, from mark making to air dry flooded paint.  I enjoyed every minute of it.  I can take this painting thing very seriously, or i can simply have fun.  And that's what I'm doing....fun fun fun.

You can find this painting in my shop....Amor Amor. 

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!! 

Letting Go and Making Something New

I was watching a video of creativity, and Julie Burstein was talking about the Negative Capability concept by poet John Keats, and she said that it was: 

"The ability to stay in a stage where you don’t exactly know what is going to happen next.  It is willing to chase down ideas, but also understanding that not all those ideas are going to lead somewhere. 
The experience of pursuing an idea, will influence the next step. 
But at the end, you have to seat down and do the work.” 

And that's practically what I do with my paintings… is kind of a experimentation, constant work and movement, until I find myself getting ideas and ideas, that feeds my curiosity. 
At the end I may have a painting, or I may have a total disaster.  Its all ok, because I did the work, and the process its what's feed me.  I learn to let go, of the “ohh that looks perfect” “Ahhhh, I totally blew it with what I did next” “Ok, its done, I don’t want to ruin it, but what if….” 

It’s the process of accepting loss…Creativity and its' process is not only for the artist, its just part of life itself.
