In the Paint

My next post will be on a redesigned page that reflects an amazing journey since I last blogged - in early 2015! 
I believe with all my heart that we are always 'in-process' and possess infinite creativity, but I haven't always felt that way. I recently uncovered the perplexing switch that allows monkey mind, fear and resistance to block the journey to becoming as complex, complete and evolved as possible. Can't quite put my finger on it (bad pun), when exactly I began painting without pause, without question, and thankfully without that nasty, clingy critic rambling in my head. OK, I still hear it occasionally but can shut it up and listen to my studio music instead. 
I've come to realize that those whiny voices aren't real, that self-doubt can be overcome and that my insatiable love for the creative process has paid off. I am ready to send my work out into the world. If you know me you know that I'm not one to boast or call false attention to myself, preferring instead honesty, being real and vulnerable with total openness. It's simply time. In the coming weeks I'll share my work, materials, inspirations and reflections, while hoping madly that you will still be reading!
Until then, I have one burning question: Do you ever stop creating briefly to dance in the studio? Please, please, please leave a comment with your answer (research) and any other words you are willing to share! Namaste and blessings to all.
