“Everyone needs a place to retreat; a spot where the world grows quiet enough for the soul to speak.”— Angie Weiland-Crosby
Winter landscapes pull me into a warm embrace of quiet
solitude and introspection.
I was asked by a student to share how I get into the flow state and tap into my intuition through landscapes. I decided the best way to do this was to jump right into making a process video. It’s been a long time since I painted a landscape and I was having trouble remembering my process. I could have waited, practiced and refined my techniques to share and be the “expert” but I decided to just let go and show my vulnerability. It wasn’t an easy process for me, I was confronted with feelings that I haven’t experienced in a while. I was worried that I was an imposter, painting inadequately. I was nervous and very self-aware which is not a great place to let go and find your flow. I persisted anyway. The results weren’t perfection, they were flawed and beautiful. The gift was that I witnessed myself working through the process with the tools that have worked for me countless times and that I share with you during my lessons.
THE MORE I PAINTED, THE MORE I RELEASED,
AND THEN CALM WASHED OVER ME.
The finished paintings weren’t the important part of the process. The important part was working through my emotions and ending my art practice feeling good and at peace with my progress. I also have some meaningful little paintings to be proud of.
This palette is a warm mix of wintery solitude.
