The Many Hues of White #3 - Sold

He moves me.........

This painting comes from my idea about the many hues of white, but I was also inspired by a dream. The title "He moves me" popped into my head as I was waking up. My dream guy was supportive of my creative ideas, as my inner male, he mirrored the love that is deeply developing within my being. A spirit of light and love that is available for everyone to experience.

My intention in the world is that everyone follow that voice that speaks of being unique, so that your gift can bring inspiration to all.

I find myself in a fig

I laugh at the title, but think why not write about this inner world that seems to throw me around, tosses me in an unknown universe of my inner figness.

I was writing earlier today about love and how when something we judge as bad happens and we think (to much thinking) how horrible this is. How could this happen to me. Then I felt something as I looked at my half eaten fig. Inside this amazing piece of fruit, is a universe unto itself, complete, whole, and just being what it does best, being a fig. Does this fig sit there looking up at me as I take a bite, saying, How horrible it is that I'm going to die from my original form, how bad this event is, or poor me!!!! This fig stared up at me, even in its half eaten form it still looked beautiful, it was still a fig, but perhaps this fig was going to be transformed into something completely different.

So I thought, well, when people leave our lives or events happen that may seem unfair, I feel that it is now just a different form that this universe wants us to take on. This universe wants us to grow, be eaten away into something much more beautiful, more loving, more of who we are meant to be.

Perhaps we hold on to tightly to who we think we are. Perhaps if we allow each person or event to teach us to go more deeply into love than into hate, perhaps then we can transform ourselves into a new beautiful form.

Allow yourself to become the love that you want to see in the world. Allow life to take you deeper into love.

I'm now going back to eat the rest of my figs.

The Many Hues of White #2

I'm sometimes motivated by ideas, but other times it is only through my feelings that paintings come into play. This painting is of the latter form as I felt an authentic truth of my being speaking. I allowed my feelings of grief and loss communicate the sadness that had been locked up for the last month. I could finally admit that all this white had frozen me in time and now blue is giving me the strength to thaw.

The Many Hues of White #1

Within white sits all colors, but then I thought if every color is held in white, then white must be held in every color. This painting is a work of all the colors of the world, but your eye can only witness white and red.

The Many Hues of White

I'm starting a new series of white paintings. The painting below called "Yellow moves me" was based on this idea of darker colors laying below a lighter hue. I'm interested in what is moving below the surface and behind the mask.

The color white holds all hues within it, so my intention is to bring a subtle voice to the underlying tones, while giving white the main stage.

Each painting will portray a feeling, a movement, a space of honesty.

Now I just have to wait for the paint to dry!!! I do love oils, but it does reach into a pocket of patience.

Yellow moves me

I felt yellow move to the surface of my being, leading down the path of love. Yellow bubbles up, fills me with joy, and releases me to go deeper within my truth and beauty. This painting was a joy to do, to be with, to nurture.

Call on yellow to fill you with joy, power, and excitement.
