'Transition painting' - paintings in process.
I am 5 weeks into the 'Facilitator Training' I'm doing with Flora Aube & 'The Art of Allowing Academy' .......lots & lots of new challenges & deep Self inquiry. Enjoying stretching myself as usual, & witnessing the amazing surprises which manifest on my canvas over & over!
The focus of the inquiry revolves around The Mother & child relationship
Painting N0.1 - 'Re.Birth'
Note!: The child holds tight to the Divine Vine or Umbilical cord throughout all the paintings, her link to Source.
Painting No.2. - 'Reassurance'
'Letting go'. The challenge is to paint over a completed image at least four times, to arrive at the final piece........I love the colours in this one, so I'm posting it before it disappears!
This tells a story of
Birth & Rebirth.
The first painting was birth into the Natural World...a baby totally integrated & at one with Mother Nature. Now the same child is in process of being birthed into a world with a physical, human Mother. (I turned the canvas on its side to see what would present itself...it felt like a good position for 'birthing'!) - The baby is anxious despite caring loving hands to receive her. A familiar 'entity' bids her farewell with reassurance that she will never be alone, that 'Elementals' will always be at her side regardless of whether they can be seen or not. The baby smiles & begins to let go of the vine (or umbilical cord) still connecting her to her Divine nature, which can never be lost.
