JOURNAL

Peacocks and Patience

Chrissy Foreman Cranitch

One of the things I love about getting older, is the increasing richness that grows within, over time. In years past, I would create in a passionate fury and feel a deep sense of frustration if I didn't finish a piece in one sitting. This meant, I would pump the emotion out fast, but I was just touching the surface of my capacity of Spirit.

Motherhood has changed that for me (out of necessity) because I have had to learn to paint in small chunks of time and develop ways to find ease in disruption. Patience is becoming a virtue! This has allowed me to free-up my expectations and just enjoy the time I have ... Relishing in the process.

I am so grateful now, because I have no qualms in a painting taking weeks and even months to find completion. 3 hours or 30 hours ... It's no longer about making a product. Now I feel settled taking my time with my work, allowing more time to weave in much richer layers of feeling and intention.

The richness that this perseverance can make to an Artwork, is something truly beautiful. It allows time for our story to really be told. All these life experiences pile up and express themselves freely, once the brush is in hand.

The next time I return, the space between painting sessions may provide just the insight and distance to see my work afresh, and I will know what I need to do next. Intuitive, expressive painting unfolds moment by moment.

Often, the new directions will inform other paintings I'm working on too. They begin to marry together in colour and content, like a pair of twin flames.

A new paint palette might be just the direction I need to move forward and the freshness it brings can move mountains, quite literally in this sister piece.

In the end, it doesn't really matter which goes first or which painting led the way. It becomes just a matter of expression and intuitive unfolding. And I am completely in love with the journey.

I have maybe a few final tweaks before these two are finished ... And the timing for this will be perfect, I know. For now, I am happy to appreciate the journey.

All My Love,
