I am not clever with my understanding of messaging, so I am posting a quick reply to a recent question. I have been using oil and knife…. also finger and rag and occasionally a brush or cotton wool bud.
I am ‘called’ by colour as I dig around in my memory and revisit the emotion that follows.
I then push the colour around until images start to suggest themselves to me and then I follow them in… bringing out details here and there.
In this way there is often no plan or design, the paintings emerge and take me by surprise. When it brings tears, I know that my intuition has touched the right spot and told me something true.
It continues to be a revelation.
I hope this answers your question.
Thank you to everyone who has commented. There are a few more to come, while the energy lasts!
