After a couple of local workshops introducing me to the use of ACRYLICS, I embarked on an on-line course with
FLORA AUBE in the Spring of 2015 - "The Art Of Allowing" & later "Abstract Realism"
This has changed my life!
"The Art Of Allowing" is the vehicle I have been looking for all these years. It speaks to me of FREEDOM.
During the eight week course I found such support and permission to experiment. . . to make marks. . . using all kinds of tools, mostly my fingers!. . to be generous with colour. . . courageous in finding my edges and pushing into them. . . discovering they were new beginnings full of expression coming from somewhere totally new to me. I am loving what I am doing...each new painting fills me with joy and gratitude because they are gifts flowing from a place beyond my reasoning mind & conditioning. . . beyond any need to control...they have their own intention. I am a vessel, which feels like the arms and the legs of the Universal Creator which is longing to be expressed from deep within us all.
