Poppies

It has been an interesting weekend.
Yesterday after talking with Rob for a bit and being sluggish and not very communicative his gf came home and I headed out to an art show opening that I had been invited to. I didn't really want to go at first, but I dragged my butt of the couch and went.
There were TONS of people there, but the show was amazing. It was absolutely spectacular. The woman is an amazing artist with just so much stuff. Water colours and mixed media. It was inspirational since I used to work a lot in watercolours. It was botanical stuff which I love.
Anyhow at the show I met up with a couple of friends and ended up at a culture festival where we had felafel and watched 2 and a half concerts. The music was excellent. And there were a lot of people there. I half flirted with a guy who wouldn't stop staring at me. Not because he was good looking, just because I could, he kept looking at my feet. lol... I guess he liked my new sandals.

Today on the other hand I painted all day. The show had my all worked up about painting again. So I did a little two piece painting of a poppy. Which I'll post a portion of below. I'm pretty pleased with it, It's been ages since I painted. probably 2 years or so.

Painting is a bit like having sex. I was thinking about it all day while I was painting. I may even write a little sensory description of it. It might be an interesting change from sex. heh.

A beautiful painting, I can't paint but do love photographing flowers, look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

And for the record yes I agree creating any form of art is like sex, you might have inspired my next journal entry :)

Wow that's beautiful, you're really talented!

And I keep saying this, but I think none of what's happening is a coincidence. You take up painting after two years... inspired by the art show, yes, but also because you have new energy, and because you're (more) allowing yourself to pursue activities and interests you're passionate about... no?

It's extremely beautiful. Time for you to become who you were meant to be.

You have a gift, you should do more of what you like, it makes you happy.

"Today on the other hand I painted all day." This is the best news I've heard in a long time.

You need to create more, worry less, smile wider, paint brighter, and just be happier.

Enter flow state.
When time disappears.
And there is only the paper. The brush. The paint. And the life of colours taking shape.

You should post the other piece. I would LOVE to see the complete work.
