My new Acrylic painting
PAINTING IT OUT HOW TO TURN YOUR RAW EMOTIONS INTO POTENT CREATIVE FUEL
Let go of trying to make a “pretty” painting, and focus on making a “feeling” painting. Your emotions might not look very “pretty” right now, but I bet you have a deep well of powerful fervor just waiting to be tapped and released. This is the stuff great art is made of. Use it.
Recently, I’ve been writing out my current thoughts, feelings, prayers and desires right onto the canvas with paint. More often than not, I can’t even read them, but what matters is that they are there — out of my mind and safely embedded into the layers of paint.
