journey within

 |  September 22, 2006

Continuing with my exploration of my pregnancy. This one is called Journey Within. This was the painting that I got severely stuck on and caused an untimely stretch of a block. I had to put it aside while I worked on some other paintings. When I returned to it, I was reluctant, but I am so glad I did. There is something very satisfying about confronting a block and just pushing through. It’s funny how a few weeks ago when my eyes would fall upon the unfinished painting I would feel anxiety. But now I feel a sense of calm when I look at it.

The words around the right side of the womb read: Within me now, a new journey begins. a possiblity. a promise…
