Yippee! Happy New Year! Time and date with such a definitive cross-over may be a man-made concept, but it is after all something wonderful to celebrate. Another year of wisdom, another badge collected. 🙂 And we continue our journey with a different number.
Today is first January, of an 11 year – fresh step into mastery! Here is a shower of blessings, light and free! My first ever oil painting. ❤ and my favourite ever painting. ❤ ❤ It was done in the last 11 year (2009).
This transition feels like a really light-hearted, light-footed, bliss-lit one. I have no idea why, it just feels extremely good. The transition is accompanied by a heavy downpour which has been going on non-stop since morning 31 Dec 2017 and crossed over to 1 Jan 2018. Lotsa cleansing, purifying? Lotsa prosperity and abundance? It feels like there is something just below the horizon, peeking out any moment now. Can’t really pinpoint, probably something I don’t know about, which the Universe is conspiring to make happen. Something good for sure, at the way I’m feeling light and fluttery all day.
I suddenly thought of this painting, because it depicts the feeling exactly – light, dynamic, free, happily dancing into the unknown, carrying hope that it’s all good. It may not look like much, other than a dandelion and its wishes flying into the wind. Wind may be invisible, but we see its existence through these faes it carries. To me, this painting is a personal exercise of courage. It was not easy crossing the psychological threshold of painting each individual fluffy seed, because any “mis-strokes” would mean losing the pristine-ness of the painting (or knowing me, it would mean losing this painting to the storeroom). So with each new fluffy, it was an increased stake. And any new fluffy could mean it was too much. Imagine that pressure! But I took it on, and with faith, courage, and a very steady hand, it was finally completed with no mishaps. 🙂 Pat on the back!
