I'm going home. I'm claiming my rulership. Back to Art, fully immersed, and sharing what comes.
Over the past month, I've been invested in a personal project while getting closer to exploring Art as the healing modality it is. I've been approached to teach an unfamiliar medium - so, I took this as an opportunity to get closer to it and since decided that I'm going to explore the lessons that each medium teaches me. Let's start with Watercolor: the gentle teacher.
A medium requiring light touch, submission, and surrender.
It speaks in such a soft tone. It has a strategic way of reaching the deeper mind. Useful as a primer in the practice of letting go. It speaks to the heart. It can bring one to tears.
It teaches the beauty in transparency and the harmony it creates, layer upon layer.
I immersed myself in a couple exercises:
1. I went inside of myself and asked my Heart what it needs. I then switched the paint brush to my least dominant hand, cleared my mind as much as possible and grabbed the color that spoke. It was green. Afterwards, I began to intuitively create.
2. I filled my watercolor paper with water and decided I would create an "inkblot" test - a channeled image.
3. I created a more structured intentional exercise of creating flowers.
Each of them showed me the power of water: the element of emotions, nurture, connectedness, currency, and healing.
I started to post the pieces but felt immensely protective over them - I won't post them here now but some are available somewhere on social media in a secret account.
