This is painting #43 from my ‘100 Messages To Myself’ painting series.
This is an original painting. There is only one!
These are the words that popped into my mind as I painted this one, so I went with it. I’m practicing trusting myself lately, so I guess maybe that’s why. And I trusted myself when those pink slashes popped into my vision as the next move to make in this painting, and I’m glad I did because I love how it turned out! (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.
