Done or not done, well, that’s the question that has been going through my mind for two days…
Hello there dear reader,
I’d like to share the intuitive painting I finished recently, or is it finished?
Sometimes I struggle for days, but the best way to gauge whether it’s finished or not is to let it sit somewhere and stew. I force myself not to look at it until some time has passed. By then I can usually see something that bugs me or not…
I have actually done some work on old paintings when I see a flaw I never noticed before. I could call that growth or maybe a keener eye. Not sure, and there is no need to label it. I have a finished painting that I will work on some more shortly. I worry that I will mess it up more, but something has to be done. The good thing about acrylics you can always paint over them!
Have you tried intuitive painting? You just lay down some colors to cover the canvas and do this in many layers until you can see some rhythm or reason in the paint. Sometimes I see figures and I fill out the outline and refine from there.
It takes courage to paint without plans, but sometimes the raw art is the most powerful. Try it and you might get hooked. I doubt that I will ever go back to traditional painting.
Speaking of intuition, I am very fond of combining art and intuition. I help people release fears and blocks around creating. I have a one-on-one coaching offer going right now, and various art tutorials /e-courses. I take a lot of art e-courses myself because they inspire me. I’m always looking to stretch my creative muscles.

What are you working on this week? Spring is here and the trees are bursting with flowers. It’s wonderful.
P.S. This painting is available in my etsy shop now.
