Painting throughout that time wasn't hard at all. It seemed utterly natural. But I avoided the computer, because it represented more busyness than I could handle.
I think I'm back now to daily posting. We'll see. I like to offer my painting each day, because it seems to make a nice "sign-off" to the day's efforts. I came across a Victor Hugo quote recently: "When you have . . . accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake." Isn't that a peace-inducing thought?
Day 55. Spirals were calling out to me. The stuff I was working out personally seemed like a tornado. I think I was experimenting with the swirls to see if I could see some direction and purpose there.
Day 56 was when I found some shaky peace with what I was dealing with in my life. I just played with color. At first the applications seemed shaky and woobly--(technical term, there :). But at the end, I liked that no matter how out-of-focus my moments might seem, at the end they still make beautiful colors and patterns together.
Day 57. Not sure if this is more spiralling, or "eye of the storm"--it didn't come out as I'd envisioned. All I know is that that is me, at the deepest, darkest center, and the dark is not "dark," but solid and sure.
I continue to be amazed at how this project has introduced me to painting as a way of wordless expression. I am quite loving it.
