The rain came today…

I wanted to express gratitude for the rain. These rain goddesses emerged after a lot of scribbling.

Interesting to observe how differently I feel when I’m not using my own materials and when I have full permission to be really messy.

These pieces – which I love – are from a free-form silent art and meditation night hosted by an artist friend in Half Moon Bay. I was completely immersed in No Thinking and just let the materials lead my body around. No thought just “Oh! That!” kind of wonder and curiosity.

Find a space to get messy and wild.

Today I put a plastic sheet on my floor because it’s wet outside (yay rain!). I feel like Jackson Pollock painting on the floor. I need a bigger sheet because I am splattering and stepping in paint with all my big gestures!
