ORIGINAL COPY POSTED ON INSTAGRAM DURING THE CHALLENGE
Strange things happen when you welcome the not knowing. I walked into my studio today, feeling directionless as to what I might want to paint.
Nothing felt evident, yet everything was possible.
I sat down and searched through some images on Unsplash. One caught my attention. It spoke without words to something I was feeling. Then, as if my pause for consideration made the muse’s ears prick up, another image and then another came through on my search, that although totally non-related, were to me – the story of what I was feeling.
That’s how I like to say I dance with the muse. I step onto the dance floor, partnerless but ready to razzle. She joins me. Then she leads. I twirl into her embrace, throw myself over backwards. She catches me.
So, this here painting is part of a triptych of a different kind. I’m hoping it reveals a story for you too. I won’t name it just yet – because, well – until things are complete, naming them seems to limit what they might become.
Until then, this will be the innominate one.
