As it was both my birthday (yeah...48!!) and Mother's Day last weekend, nothing was accomplished over the course of those two days...except for celebrating of course!! And...I have a "day job" so my only time for art is later on in the evenings. So, considering the small amount of time I have during the week to spend on my art, I guess I am progressing! My Venice beach scene is coming along...working on the sand right now. Not sure if I will be adding color or not to this piece...it's missing something but haven't put my finger on it yet.
This is a new piece just started on Monday. As I said in one of my earlier posts I want to put my own messages in my graffiti pieces and since I've been working on self-love and forgiveness lately, thought this piece was appropriate to start working on. Louise Hays says that all problems can be traced back to a lack of self love and acceptance. That all our experiences (good or constricting) are just outer effects of our inner thoughts...and I highly agree. I've been so stuck in my pain and the past lately, but am making a conscious choice to release, think different thoughts, and making a commitment to loving myself more and to being happy again. And that feels really good!
