Sassy stillness!?

"Sassy" 12"x48" "Sassy" 12"x48"




Time is flying! It is already the second half of March. I have had a very busy first quarter with many visitors and a lot of fun! My sister with family visited over Christmas and my parents have just left after being here for 5 weeks. We have had such a good time. I have also been celebrating my birthday with a full day in the forest with kids and parents. It was magical! New Zealand is such a beautiful place!


My latest painting is "Sassy". Sassy is described as lively, bold, and full of spirit as well as cheeky. I loved painting her! She is a Mixed Media lady on a 12"x48" stretched canvas.


She got her name after comments I got showing her in one of my artist groups that I am part of. I was a bit worried that she looked a bit angry. My son think she does... but my arty friends thought she looked; alert, impish, confident, strong, purposeful, sassy... :- )


She is very textured, which does not really show in the photo. I have used paper, acrylics, moulding paste, crackle paste, oil pastel, colored pencils, ink and... probably some other things too:-)


Usually I learn things during the process of painting my pieces. I can not say that Sassy has taught me something yet. At the moment I am very focused of finding harmony; inner harmony and peace within. I do not know what "Sassy" will tech me related to that.


She is now hanging on my kitchen wall until I feel she is ready to move somewhere else. Maybe a new gallery that I will approach next week:-) Who knows??





I have delivered yet another painting to the Turner Gallery. This time a bigger painting 24"x24" - Stillness II.


I love Erich Schiffmann's definition of stillness:


"Stillness is not the absence or negation of energy, life, or movement. Stillness is dynamic. It is unconflicted movement, life in harmony with itself, skill in action. It can be experienced whenever there is total, uninhibited, unconflicted participation in the moment you are in - when you are wholeheartedly present with whatever you are doing"


This is definitely something that I will explore further and for sure write more about during my search for Inner Harmony.


Until next time - be present in the moment!
