Epiphanies and Process

I'm sharing a painting that sold a while ago.

I remember well the process was a struggle at first. And then, an epiphany!

Let go.

Just release all my expectations of "should" and "must". Let the brush and the paint reach into my heart and express how I felt about that scene, that fleeting moment.

And now, that memory , that feeling is indelible.

And that, my friend, is why I paint.

Does that resonate? Are you drawn to artwork that speaks to some secret or not so secret place in your being?

 Created using acrylic paint on canvas and no small portion of my soul. Finding myself at peace in the Northern Ontario lakes, rocks and skies.
