‘Peaceful in Wild’ – Day 243/365

‘Peaceful in Wild’ – Day 243/365

There’s a framed quote standing on a shelf in my studio.
“There is peaceful. There is wild. I am both at the same time.”
.
I used to read this as ‘we all have a peaceful centre and a wild storm within us simultaneously and the lesson comes in having the will to choose which to give credence to’. It gnawed at me though because by that definition, ‘wild’ felt undesirable, and my heart so desired to connect with the meaning of ‘wild’.
.
But today’s miniature opened up a new insight in my heart.
.
For a while now I’ve observed my painting style transforming. My first response was sheer panic. I couldn’t paint them the same way I used to! I was losing my vivid edge, that ability I had to recreate rock for rock, cloudline for cloudline.
