I Am Loving Painting Right Now!

One of my more recent paintings

I know last week I had said was going to finally get around to posting pictures from our Cape Cod trip we took back in June. I thought I should let you in on a little secret first. It's part of the reason why I've been posting less to my blog. 

I am absolutely loving painting right now! Gosh, it's such a release of creative energy and it relaxes me. I feel like I finally have found the thing I had been missing in my life. 

About five years ago when I was going through a little dark period, I fell in love with the work of the artist Kelly Rae Roberts. She had these little inspirational sayings on her paintings of ladies that just spoke to me. I added a few of her prints to my house, making the point of reading the words on them daily. Those little messages were like vitamins for my spirit. I've been a follower of her blog and newsletter since then. When I learned in August that she was going to begin hosting monthly art dates, a voice in my head said, "Do it!" Without hesitation, I signed up and I am so glad that I did.  

Can I tell you, it was so wonderful to see her process of creating a piece. It made me feel more at ease with the way I go about painting because most of the time when I sit down to make something I go in with no plan. I like to let things just happen...or simply unfold. 

So I will get around to posting those Cape Cod pictures at some point. Maybe tomorrow. LOL! I just wanted to let y'all know what I've been up to.
