In early summer 2017 I had a dream that I drew a tree with charcoal. I woke up knowing that I needed to take an art class, but ignored the urgency of the dream. Two days later I had another dream in which I was painting a very colorful and vibrant painting. I have not picked up a paintbrush since I was in 5th grade and have never had any training in art. Plus, since I have vision only in one eye, I was a little hesitant to jump right in. After the second dream, I felt that I had no choice but to follow that calling. I signed up for a class that was to begin in three days, bought supplies from the list, and patiently waited with excitement and anxiety for the class to begin. On the day of the first class they called to tell me that it was cancelled. I was frustrated, but figured that since I had the dreams, as well as the supplies, I would check out art classes on YouTube.
Since then a whole new world has opened up to me and I am painting almost every day. It is as if this aspect of me has been waiting for a time that it could come out. What I love is before I begin a painting I write positive affirmations, prayers, and loving thoughts on the blank canvas. I believe that these loving thoughts have a life of their own that can nourish a space. I would love to share these paintings with you because they radiant the love that they’ve been infused with.
Since I have learned so much in the short time that I have been painting, I have no doubt that I will continue to evolve with what I am doing. Thank you for sharing in the journey towards Living the Best You!
