- Let the Sun Shine In — a celebration of creative energy on a 12-inch square canvas! It’s been a few weeks since I returned from my retreat at the Omega Institute yet only now am I beginning to communicate that experience visually in my artwork. The image of the sun seems the perfect symbol for this exciting new phase in my life.
- Let the Sun Shine In
As you can see from a page in my sketchbook, I knew the composition almost immediately but had a “traditional” (i.e. boring) color scheme in mind. When I started rummaging through my fabrics, paints, & beads, the vibrancy of the materials inspired a new direction with a bolder color palette. I released my preconception of what the piece “should be” & allowed myself to go forward with a greater sense of freedom & pleasure in the process.
The sun has been a source of inspiration for cultures since the beginning of time, symbolizing creation, energy, & transformation. We, like the sun, carry that positive energy inside of us & it’s up to us to shine our unique light into the world. Namaste!
