Daily Painting: Very busy

Daily Painting: Very busy

Dear reader,

 

Today I made a small painting (a cut out with crayon). The end-result was much too busy, but still I enjoyed the process.

 

Since I’m writing a book right now and have also other responsibilities in my family, I don’t take a lot of time for painting. There is simply not enough time in the day. I’m searching for a way to keep my painting going. Cutting out pieces of old paintings and adding crayon is a very good way to keep in contact with my artistic creativity, but it doesn’t give me the sensory pleasure of playing with paint. Right now I’m searching for a way to keep creating ‘from scratch’ (in stead of from older paintings), that don’t cost too much time. Maybe using watercolor? I don’t know! Question to universe!

Daily Painting: Be Here

Daily Painting: Be Here

Dear reader,

 

Today another small painting – I could rather call it a cut-out: It’s a piece of an old painting (a family member of the other paintings of the last few days). I only added small dots to it.

Painting gives me the possibility to ‘Be Here’, and to practice being here, whatever happens. More and more I recognize: happiness is an inside job. I can let myself thrown apart by my inner dialogue of how terrible things are or how stupid I am, but I can also recognize this as mindless mind activity and keep on celebrating life!

Daily Painting: Repurposing old paintings

Daily Painting: Repurposing old paintings

Dear reader,

 

Today I started the day again with a small painting. It’s part of an old painting, and I only added some dots and a little bit of black paint on it. It’s not the same as ‘real’ painting – but for now, it works for me. I keep in touch with my painting, and I’m looking patiently forward to longer stretches of painting.

Bye!

Daily Painting: Three Dots

Daily Painting: Three Dots

Dear reader,

 

This morning I started again with a small painting. First thing in the day (after a small meditation – but painting is in itself also meditation). This keeps the fire burning until I will have time to paint more again.

Daily Painting: Prayer of the Day

Daily Painting: Prayer of the Day

Dear reader,

 

Daily painting is not only about making something beautiful every day or playing around with colorful stuff. It can also serve as a meditation, a form of prayer, a way to center at the beginning of the day, staying rooted in the world of being instead of  running straight into the world of doing. I like to experience it that way.
