Be Free

I started this painting in December. When I was in a strange mood. Painting helped me focus my attention on something positive. I enjoyed moving the brush strokes on the paper. The way the paint saturates the white surface. Playing between the dark and light blue. Then adding the details. After adding the background I wasn’t inspired anymore. So I put it away. But I didn’t forget about it. Just saved it. Waiting for new inspiration to come.

I became inspired again in March. So I added the details, added silver metallic paints. Mixed watercolour with acrylic ink. Added depth to the painting. Then finished it by naming it. It’s called “Be Free.” Can you see where I wrote that in the painting?

Do what you love

A poem that I wrote when I started Mindful Art Workshop. It was originally published on my blog September 2013. The same feelings of hesitations, doubts, discomfort are still here. The difference is – I’ve taken the steps to go forward. To start my business. To continue my work in providing mindfulness, biofeedback, and art therapy to people who need it, my clients. Listening to my inner voice, and then making the choice. To be vulnerable. To experiment. To follow my heart. What is success Amee? It is following my heart.
