I'm so revived by these new paintings I've been working on! I call them my "Zing and Swing" pieces because they are vintage-inspired, super-colorful, and so fun! If ever there is a painting that really exudes who I am on the inside, it's these.
I know that suffering from depression might make some people want to express those dark feelings in all kinds of ways; but for some reason THESE paintings are what wants to come out of me. I'm convinced it is because my true soul wants to show itself...to bring much needed joy in my outward life and remind me that I'm ok. That I'm still there and happy inside. Those seeds of my bubbly and colorful self are still sprouting and taking root.
For a long time I was worried that creating floral paintings might be considered cliche or cheesy in some way. Like it's not serious art. But, that notion has gone due to the fact that it is needed in this world. It is happy. It is uplifting. And if it can help others the way it has helped me, then it is important and real. These come through me almost like magic and I have to believe God has a hand in that. He has a hand in ALL humanity as he gives us gifts with which to bless the world. So, I'm sharing this here with you and will continue to do so!!!! I refuse to apologize for being bubbly and for bringing hope out in the form of art.
I hope you love them and they bring you light and joy!
