After three months of packing, moving, and renovating our new house, I am painting again. I love my studio and the fact that all my art supplies are organized, put away, and labeled. But best of all, I am painting again and I realize that painting is my way of connecting with the divinity within.
How wonderful that painting patiently waits for us to return. Art is a journey of discovery and slowly the truth is revealed. If we are willing to continue painting and to remain present, our subjects will teach us all we need to know. As Greg Biolchini said years ago in my first ever portrait class, “The model says nothing but teaches us everything.”
So great to be back in the sacred space of painting.
