Letting it go - everything!
"The pressure or stress of trying to keep something far out weighs the joy experienced while letting it go."
A thought going around in my head for the last couple of days which can relate to many areas of life - if not all.
On that note I am please to state that I have sold and delivered "Napa" to it's new home where I hope it provides a life time of enjoyment and visual pleasure.
I had been asked if it was difficult in letting it go (as with most all of my paintings) and the answer was really, "not at all". I am so happy and the fact that I firmly believe each painting I move to another space, outside of my home or studio, provides an opening for something completely new to be created.
Just as in life when we begin to let go of things (thoughts, beliefs, knowledge, judgments, etc...) a space is immediately created by the void of that thought and whatever you want can fill that space. So create a new thought and/or in my case I have the opportunity to create a new painting.
I need to create some more space in my studio so I have several of paintings looking for a new view!!!!
