“Creativity is the door that opens my heart and listens to my soul’s whispers” – Suzie Cheel
My creativity has become a daily part of my self-love healing process. My current form of creativity is my intuitive painting. I painted several series since the universe gave me a GIANT wake up call back in July last year. The major one of these was The Intuitive Heart Series where I have painted and drawn 45 hearts and I am now in the process of writing a message to go with each heart.This will become a book and a set of cardsthat you can draw daily inspiration from. Then I created a left handed series after fracturing my humerus in January- another wake up call from the universe
Last week I created a new Creative Wellness Journal and most days I paint when I first get up, after doing a meditation. I never have a plan, I walk into my studio and allow myself to be drawn to a color and then I am guided to either start with paint or to use watercolor or oil crayons and start with a drawing. I always have my brushes at hand along with many tools, found objects I collect. Sometimes I find what I have painted is in sync with something a friend might have written on a blog post or shared on facebook. Below is the cover of my current journal. I usually set an intent to give my journals a cover before I start a new journal. Here I have taken one of my rainbow paintings and over painted the words and added in my photo
I like having my paintings in one place in the journal rather than individual sheets of paper. these are often scattered around the studio:) Sometimes I might write and collage the pages, so far I have still been writing in another journal. Writing this gave me the idea to sit with the painting after I have finished it and listen for my soul’s whispers. Who know this maybe another series.
