My freelancing group have reminded me that if I’m stuck with the downsides of freelancing, it’s best if I really exploit the upsides such as flexible working hours. So I slept in until midday today, worked from home for a few hours, then went into the studio for a bit. It was delightful. I cleaned and organised, and planned to do some gilding I’ve been needing to find time for. But I really wanted to play with my new restricted palette and I decided I’d done enough stressful things today and could reward myself. So I took this lovely print of a Waterhouse painting, and I mixed all these colour swatches as if I was going to paint it. This colour mixing process works brilliantly for me, I’m so pleased. I’ve decided to start talking back to my limiting anxiety and tell myself I can reach the heights of any skill or profession I apply myself to. It’s helping undo a lot of blocks in my head, I can learn better and think a little more clearly. Every moment of that is a blessing I treasure.
I’m also starting new classes this week, courtesy of Rose. Meditative wood carving lessons, which she thought might help my anxiety. Looking forward to it.
One thought on “Oil paint swatches”
hi ~Sarah, am just re-reading Cheri Huber, Make a Change for Good; would so like to share with you; sorry I can’t send you a copy; have you read something by her? feel sure you would/ will like it; – not only re disidentification but also “karmically conditioned part who wnat to keep suffering as that keeps them real…” – and all said with a light touch – I shall start her 30-day-practice as suggested at the end of the book on Friday. 🙂 Best wishes,
