Heaven is a mixed media art piece on canvas with lashings of texture and touches of gold leaf. Below is the reflection I wrote on the day I painted the original. When my neurological condition kicked in, in late August, one of the big things that happened was that I felt really disconnected from me. I know and have known and experienced for some time now how powerful it is to be tuned into your body and the feelings it is telling you Simply...the body doesn’t lie I have really felt the loss of being disconnected from my body and the loss of my intuition that has been my guiding light for quite a while now From those first early days of this wild ride, colour was a way back for me It settled my brain and just felt natural @juliacmaybe kitted me up with a couple of precious colour books. @amisum would send pictures of special artwork to me in hospital when I was up to receiving it and @angemillerart’s alcohol ink videos I watched from my hospital bed. Indeed I was on the phone to the fabulous owners of @artworxgeelong talking all things supplies (thank you ladies) When I’m painting now I feel like me. I’m in my body and I trust my intuition. One of my friends and amazing artist @georgielucock said watch your hand turn into gods hand and let it rip (how cool is that). If I hadn’t of gotten sick would I have allowed this level of surrender? Would have I created space to paint for days and days on end? Probably not I’d say. So I’m grateful. And happy. And connected to my soul. I love this. I love me!
