Taking it further
Usually by now, I would've scrapped this painting. I much more into instant gratification. However, this painting has been teaching me to have patience and look a little deeper, take breaks and have a look-see later. Joanne and I have been conversing about this painting. Those conversations have been helping me to dig deeper and open my heart to some powerful and scary emotions. Which when I am open to learning, they don't seem that scary after all.
So....this past painting session has revealed a staircase. If she chooses to go that route, where does it lead? Deeper into her heart? Into another chamber? Will she meet anyone along the way? I think there may be more for her to do before she enters daylight. Still no face. Joanne's suggestion that we all wear different faces depending on the situation, work, home, formality, intimacy, for others, for ourselves or maybe she doesn't know who she is, which could be why she is in this place. At this point she is only taking along what she absolutely needs.....a candle....light...and she travels alone.
We'll see where the next session takes us......
