This is painting #25 from my ‘100 Messages To Myself’ painting series.
This is an original painting. There is only one!
At the end of the summer there was a full moon in the astrological sign of Pisces. The energy of that full moon was emotional and sensitive… but not like full moons from a few months ago and through all the wild energy of summer… this one was more rooted or something. Like we can (and do) trust ourselves more now. I know for certain that’s true for me. Like maybe there’s a bit of space between the emotion and the soul underneath it or something. I don’t know. now it’s more like noticing, accepting, and actually being a little more gentle with myself. It’s like a bit more pausing than before. Space. Interesting. Anyway! Pisces moon, fish painting…. it’s all connected somehow. Pause. You are worthy. Of love. Of loving yourself. Of time. Of forgiving yourself. Of trying again. Of second chances. Or making new choices. Of changing your mind. Of standing in your truth. Of having big dreams that might make no sense right now. Of letting go of what’s not working. Of not waiting for one more second. Of being happy. Of your life. You are worthy of your life. You are worthy of life. (Here‘s the full message I wrote when I painted it.)
My life changed dramatically in August 2018 when my husband suddenly died and then again in January 2019 when my baby girl was born. It’s been a strange 15 months! Creating nearly daily art has been one of the main ways I’ve tuned in to my feelings and to myself as I’ve moved forward. Sharing the art that I’ve been making and the messages I’ve been giving to myself has been a powerfully healing part of my journey, and I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to share my images and thoughts with you.
