Those of who have been following me, know by now, I like to explore who I am & I like to be creative in one form or another. As I'm expressing creativity I'm experimenting with all things; painting, drawing, jewelry, writing, etc. The more I have continued to learn about myself and how and why I am who I am + the combination of exploring creatively, I've really grown a life changing understanding of myself.
My mind is chaotic, wild, it' doesn't stay in lines, or even know how to have them. It's random, it thinks of something different every minute of the day. It's loud, colorful, visual, & evolving. I used to want to paint like I was an organized thinker. I'm not. Once I started understanding, "why do I have such a hard time being organized", or "working in a normal every day is the same thing job doesn't work", or "some days I want to write, some days I want to draw, some days paint, some clean; but if I don't want to do one of those things a day and I try it doesn't work." My mind doesn't work with always doing the same thing, it's pulled by what energy I have that day. My mind doesn't actually run the show here, my heart does.
Realizing this was as hard to wrap my head around as it is to write about. However, knowing that when I'm feeling like I want to paint and learning to paint how my brain works, I believe I have found my place. The more I find my place the more the creative outlets start to find there place too.
So today, after a small painting hiatus (between remodeling our room, Steve's birthday, the slight obsession with mala making, etc) I painted the 4 happiest, feel good, powerful energy, favorite paintings I've ever painted. It was like my brain & heart were showing up on the canvas, once I stopped putting myself in lines.
Wanted to share & encourage y'all to keep exploring yourself and you never know what you'll discover.
