I have been working on self-love lately, and I came upon this idea to paint how I felt about me. The first thing I placed on the paper was a big heart. From there I just let my creative spirit guide me.
I feel as if the heart is a seed and that I have planted myself on rocky soil. I am firmly planted though. Even I can see that. My puny arms are raised in the air letting the light in as much as I am able to.
I started exploring this because I have a life long habit of falling for unavailable men (rocky soil). It has been two years since my last relationship, and I am getting closer to wanting to go down that road again. I feel the inner work is necessary before I proceed any further. My thin arms and legs tell me I am not yet strong in this self-love I am developing. But the light that surrounds me gives me courage to continue the journey.
I’d like to create a painting once a month to see how I am progressing over time. I’ll share those paintings with you here.
