Stove, Spigot, and a Flower Pot, 2021

March 7, 2021

Written by: mindfulnesspaintings

I am very much aware of the meaning behind each choice I made for this painting. I’m sure there’s subconscious meaning, but much of it is very conscious. People will ask me if I was aware of what I expressed: as though they could see into me from my painting in a way I didn’t comprehend as the creator. I am very much present when I paint. I am mindful of my choices. I choose to represent things that are loaded with personal symbolism. My family gets it. They know about the stove, the spigot and the flower pot. They were there to see it all play out. These are the things that were on the stage of my life. From the present moment, I capture the past, what still brings me joy, and what holds great meaning. Mindfulness painting is all about creative process. Each person’s process is different. A common thread is that the artist is experiencing the present moment and giving it a voice through artistic expression. When I paint, I am saying, “This is what is happening for me as life is unfolding before me. This canvas might be about yesterday or tomorrow, but it speaks from my “Right Now.” What is your creative process? How does your present moment speak through your choice of artistic expression? How do you say, “This is my “Right Now”?” From your present moment, how do you capture the past, what still brings you joy, and what holds great meaning for you? Share how you capture it. Share your creative process. Do it here, or elsewhere. Let your creative process speak. Let others see what you create. Your artistic form of expression will encourage others to join in the creative process. What you create has the power to speak to others. It also has the power to encourage others to find their own way to speak.
