Ok. So, if I can't take an immediate workshop with Flora Bowley or Tracy Verdugo, I'm gonna fake it. I am a trained intuitive massage therapist, so I applied what I've learned over the years to painting. It isn't really that different. My hands are sensitive to changes in warmth and texture within the human body which signals tension or pain. I think that's why this type of painting is so appealing to me. I like the flowing movements that leave trails of color on the canvas the way my hands have left trails of relief on the canvas of the body. I have always felt like the Creator flowed through me as I massage, pouring out His Healing Power through me, I just had to remove my self or my ego and allow The Flow. So, the other night, I tried that with painting. I liked the results. I don't feel like I'm anywhere near finished, and there is an art show in town this weekend where I really wanted to display some paintings... it may happen, it may not, but I'm painting now, and that's everything. If I can figure out how, again, I'll post a pic of the painting in process here. Please feel free to leave comments, and I welcome constructive criticism, hm... you know, I really don't. I think I'd only like to hear praise, lol! (Grin).
