The Opposite Hand

What a flower. Painting with the opposite hand gives up that control. You aren’t used to painting with this hand. You don’t know what the results will be. The variation in the strokes, size and width are much more interesting than a simple right hand. The brush and the color made me feel fall.

Change may feel weird and scarry but good willl come. Let the beauty happen by not dwelling on what was lost. For what will come will be far more beautiful. It always is.

And just like that I have and idea for the book. I am not going to plan or share every detail of this journey. I’ll share the bits I feel need to be shared. These flowers were painted with a mix of tempera and acrylic AND MY LEFT HAND. Who knew. I’m excited for what’s to come.

Last nght I was redoing my online protfolio and site. I’m creating a portfolio folder with my original works. I’m impressed. I’m only saying this because I could see proof, Yes I can paint. Yes I’m wildly creative. I borrowed that phrase from James Victore.

Isn’t it crazy how you one day look back and say oh, when’d that happen. I got skills. I got talent. It’s time to ack like it! I have and I do but sometimes inner critic shows up. You question and fear shows up uninvited.

This week I’ve got 5 more texture ideas and I’ll begin to writing. This fall I’m planning some fun art projects.
