Painting The Feminine :: Divine Mother
Published on November 1, 2013
I had three words to guide me for 2013….one of them was PAINT.
Something I didn’t do enough of, I feel.
Well, I take that back. I did a lot of watercolor painting in my Moleskine. But that’s a totally different animal than when my brush is loaded with acrylic goodness.
So as I think about what I wish to invite more of in 2014–PAINT is calling to me loud and clear already.
This November is Leah’s infamous Art Every Day Month‘s challenge–and yes, I officially signed up. I’m not waiting till 2014 to answer the call to dive back into the depths of my painting practice–instead I am using this challenge as fuel to start my engines now!
I want to explore Painting The Feminine.
I purchased a beautiful Fabriano Venezia sketchbook to commemorate this exploration–and I even have my own little hashtag for it on Instagram if you want to take a peek of my daily process (#PaintingTheFeminine).
I’m going to do my best to post my paintings here on Dirty Footprints Studio during the week. (I like to take an internet fast on the weekends.)
And today I start by sharing the very first spread in my new sketchbook–which also is the first of my Painting The Feminine series. I call it Divine Mother.
I painted it totally FEARLESS®–and the image that surfaced touched me dearly. Already I can feel the impact this series is going to have on my life–and I look forward to sharing more of it with you.
Happy Art Every Day Month everyone!! Let’s get creative together!
