PLUMERIA DEVA TAKES A BOW – #3 in Four Panel Series

WELCOME PLUMERIA DEVA

A weekend painting intensive brought forth the Plumeria Deva.   Instead of heading off to bed, which was my original intention, it was one of those times when I was pulled into the art studio at 10:30 pm Friday night, with a strong impulse to get going on this painting.   Driven, I worked hard all weekend.  This morning I was up early and was painting in my PJ’s.  When I am immersed in art, there is a pull so strong inside all else falls away – there is only the painting.  That was the state I was in, adding various refinements, until she came to full completion.

I am noticing as I paint each Deva in this series, the personalities that come out as I paint. The initial drawing may show one aspect, but as I paint the face and flowers, the personality her features evoke moves through several shifts until I feel she arrives at where she wants to be within the painting.

Now it won’t be long before I start on the final and 4th panel of this series.   I am anxious to have this last Deva join her sisters and to share with you my reflections and the message that nature is sending out through their emergence as I paint.

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not’?” – George Bernard Shaw

Albert Einstein said:  “Creativity is contagious, pass it on”  – That is my desire in sharing with all who visit here–spawning contagious creativity!   Be joyful in all you do.
