“When a flower doesn’t bloom you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower.”— Alexander Den Heijer
For this lesson, I felt called to play with the colors on my palette. I didn’t want to think much about it, I wanted to mix colors and see what happened. I think the results are really pretty! They aren’t typical flower colors and that is what I love about it. I also touched on the concept of the life cycle of your painting.
LIFE CYCLE OF YOUR PAINTING
FROM THE SECOND YOUR BRUSH TOUCHES THE PAPER
UNTIL YOUR PAINTING IS FULLY DRY
WALKING AWAY FROM IT AND NOT LOOKING AT IT FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS.
THIS GIVES YOU TIME TO SHIFT YOUR PERSPECTIVE
AND SEE YOUR PAINTING WITH NEW EYES.
This painting was full of moments of surrender. You have to let the materials do the work for you. You have to be the observer and watch how the colors spread, and the water moves in wild ways, all without interfering with the process! The results are magical and wild, instead of stiff and overworked.
Flowers can be whatever color you want them to be.
SPIRITUAL CREATIVE TOOLS
TOOLS TO ENRICH YOUR SACRED ART PRACTICE
I felt called to use some grounding helpers for this painting session. I wanted to be connected to the earth and have support for my root chakra so that I felt safe, grounded, and calm.
