A few weeks ago Open Soul Communications and I teamed up for our second Open Soul Painting workshop. What an amazing time! I want to send out many thanks to each participant, who trusted our process and brought their creative fire to the day!
The theme this round was “Open.” You can see the definition and images that emerged where vastly different for each person. We explored this broad theme by asking, what does it feel like to be open? What colors express ‘open’ to you? What are you opening up to or would like to be open to in your life and how do you express it?
Painting is a way to capture intangible but no less real elements of our lives such as emotions. Each painting spoke in a unique way to its creator. Most of us are unaware of what a richly symbolic, colorful and expressive inner life we lead. When we focus on a theme or question and paint, we make space for personal symbols and wild expression to come fourth.
At Open Soul Painting workshops we explore rich themes using a simple yet effective mixed media process. Save the Date! Our next session is June 28th from 4pm-7pm at Love Yoga Studio in North Albany, OR. Space is limited, so be sure to register and pay by visiting opensoulcommunication.com/workshops
What are you waiting to express? What would YOU paint?
