I created this piece in response to yet another lockdown and the postponement of a planned and much-loved artists trial in our community. Wondering, as we all are, “When will this nightmare end?”
I dialled up my happy playlist on Spotify and painted in response to the following lyrics: “It’s my choice to be joyful. I’m giving up on sorrow”, Trevor Hall, Jupiter’s Call
This is why I’m creating happy art. You may think,” gosh how does that help anyone?” but it does …believe me I know from the 20 years I have spent as an art, couples and child therapist creating art helps with anxiety and despair and depression and I know people who receive my paintings tell me how much joy they bring to their lives so that’s how I show up. I bring the gift of colour.
More Love Bubbles were created with joy as I flowed with grace. Also inspired by Jackson Pollock’s action paintings, and Damien Hirst’s Blossom Series. Pure bliss inspired by the beauty of nature.
Somewhere along the way in my fifties, I discovered the work of Helen Frankenthaler… I loved the way she embraced a childlike love of beauty and her call to ‘let er rip’ – to embrace spontaneous joy in colour-soaked fields of colour. I devoured her bio and found a kindred soul. I set an intention to make child-like spontaneity my new norm.
Capturing, creating and collaborating with others the beauty of childlike play has become my passion and joy. I love painting on the wing and seeing people moved by spontaneity, joy, and ultimately life itself. This painting and others in the Think Pink Series are a call to embrace happiness, love, hope and healing in our lives to live with the purpose to uplift ourselves and each other.
The collection is embodied with love, positive energy, Reiki spiritual blessings and tremendous vitality which is peaceful, enlivening and enlightening at the same time. These works of heart will bring joy to any home or office.
