Way back in March I wrote a blog in which I asked "What if I let Love paint Love?" Since then I have learned that I don't "let" it happen - Love will paint Love, and sometimes it looks like the painting above.
I've finally come to understand with clarity how my painting process works. It is very simply Love painting Love, or even more succinctly, it's Love loving Love. Love loves these paintings into being.
I recently learned a new term - "don't know mind". It's the open mind/open heart of not knowing what will happen. It's how I've always approached painting. I never know what will happen until it happens, and then things, like the Little above, happen. I love this little painting so much because of how much wisdom and love she holds and is sharing.
I've realized that all my paintings are offerings to, for and from Love. Today I'm sharing this realization and the beginning of this series of small, affordable paintings. In February I'll have a studio celebration when I'll share them with the public - a LOVE fest!
