I wasn't planning on doing anything here that required purchasing art supplies (and just how do I get this home if I decide it's a keeper? No problem, they told me...just take it off the frame and roll it up!)
I started off painting swirls and lines and then covered up what I didn't want and followed the lines and shapes that I liked. It's morphing into something organic with seed pods and leaves and petals and....who knows what's next! Every time I sit with it, I see something new and the next step reveals itself to me. It's painting intuitively and allowing each step to inform the next.
It's not surprising then, that this is also how I'm endevouring to live my life these days. Step-by-step. Allowing this day...this moment...to inform me of what I want to experience in the next. Not always easy but I'm working at it!
Meanwhile, I'm enjoying painting in this way...and not having a predetermined outcome.
Ajijic is keeping us busy...there's just so much to see and do. It has a very lively art, music and cultural life and there seems to be an endless supply of cafe's and restaurants to explore and enjoy. If you're not into the arts, there are three golf courses in the area as well as a raquets club and thermal pools. Add to this, a sunny and moderate climate and it's easy to see why so many expats have chosen to retire here.
I'll be back with a painting update soon...meanwhile I'll leave you with another poster that I created for Veronica Torres/Eloheim.
