My Life as a Portrait
Dear loved ones. I haven’t posted a blog in a few days, not because I didn’t want to or need to (it is a way to unburden myself and clear my air and maybe make sense of things), it is only because my DM has messaged me (and only because I said hi to him first) and again the strong pangs of love and attachment for him are still present with me. I thought I had finally calmed down and was at peace with this being a non-relationship. I don’t want to say too much here right now on this page because I have to think, and also DM has the link to this blog and can practically read along with me as I type.
Instead today I wanted to focus on art and especially portraiture. I love painting and drawing people’s faces and expressions. Sometimes the finished product looks like a caricature but I do not mean it to be. My aim was to capture the energy and life force.
You will find an example of a painting of my youngest daughter at the beginning of this blog titled “Flowers in her hair and beauty in her heart”. She loved the piece so I gave it to her for a birthday present one year and she has it hanging in a special place on the walls of her (our) apartment next to lots of other paintings, hers and mine. Our place is a virtual art gallery.
My most recent portraits have been of my DM (divine masculine) as I have been obsessed with his face and his eyes and a few more of his other attributes. (smiley face). I will include one or two of these paintings here for your perusal.
Today in the mail I got a slip from the post office telling me that I have a parcel to pick up and I couldn’t for the life of me remember what I had ordered. Then I remembered, of course, it is the prints of some of my paintings from an online photography store. I am excited to see them. I hope that they capture the clarity and colour of the original. It has been my plan to offer prints of my art for a small donation to anyone who would like one. My gallery page is still not set up properly so will need to get that going. I procrastinate because I don’t know what I am doing and I am better at being an artist than being a computer technician.
This is all I have for you (and for me) today. I hope you will stay with me on this journey because I really appreciate you all very much. The likes and comments really help me feel connected and supported and I also hope that in some small way what I have to say does help someone else too. Love you all very much, hugs & kisses, Summerhill Lane
