Evolution of an intention...

I've wanted to paint BIG bold painting for years but I haven't known how or where to start.  I received an email from a woman who had seen my art work in The Chalk Farm Gallery and she mentioned Shiloh Sofia McCloud and how much she was learning about painting from her.  I did a search and found out that she gave classes just 30 from me. So, of course, as serendipity took over...she was giving a one day class the next week. I signed up and now I am on my pathway of paint.  She teaches a method of painting that is easy to follow. In class we were to write down one or two words which were our intention for the day and my words were REBIRTH and EXPANSION.
And so I began my painting......with no idea of what I was doing...but when I stepped back and looked, it appeared that I had painted a tiny blue alien coming out of a vagina! LOL  Poor little scared thing!   So I thanked her for appearing to honor the birthing of this desire and then I painted her out and this Lady showed up.  Still quite hesitant, though.
 
 ....so I kept painting.....
and today this Lady showed up.  Still far from my vision, but I feel like I am moving forward.  Those are hummingbirds represented in the painting to honor the little hummingbird that flew into my studio to visit me today.  Tomorrow I will paint more and we will see how this evolves.  Meanwhile check out Shiloh Sofia McCloud's artwork.

I love that you show the transition and transformation between the paintings! Each one is beautiful and stands on its own completely. I really am attracted to the colors you have used. You paint beautifully.

I really love the Lady with the Hummingbirds. Did you ever complete the painting?
