Such energy! Such fun! Such openness and creative flow!
Such is the feedback I’m getting from my art workshop series: Get Your Goddess On ~ Using Paint, Play and Pop Psychology.
Did I call it an art workshop? I really wanna call it an “art party”, it’s that much fun!
I started this piece as a demonstration in one of the workshops, following the step-by-step process to delve within. Using symbolism and colour to identify blockages, I realised that I was feeling unsettled at home. Times were tough; and tough decisions had to be made.
During this process, I had a wake-up call. I realised how important my home is, and how connected I am with this land, this town, and the Cowaramup community. But no matter what may come, as tough as times may get, as long as I’ve got my family by my side, I will always have my home.
Overwhelmed with gratitude, I came up with “Your Heart is My Home” — there was no pre-imagined thought of what I would paint today; just a deep trusting that the right message would come via the workshop process.
I’m so so so happy to have produced this piece. If it’s not included in my first solo exhibition: Colour Me Happy, at the Cocoon Gallery in Margaret River, 1 Feb – 31 March 2016, it will be on display at my studio.
