"Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is". Jackson Pollock
Towards the end of our Art Retreat in Ojai we sat amongst the orange groves and allowed our paintings to speak to us. We wrote down what came up for us when looking at our paintings. Since the art process and creating is an intuitive process, we don't know why we are choosing certain images, colors, shapes and tones. They are drawn from our subconscious being without us realizing it. It's not until we get to allow the painting to speak to us that we can begin to understand our choices. Look at it long enough, ask it questions and you'll be amazed at what self discovery takes place. That is why I believe whole heartedly in what Pollock says: "We paint what we are." Its a way of knowing who we are....Join me on the art process journey.
