Girl of Yes
Golden Fluid Acrylic, watercolor pencil, marker on paper, 3.5x2.5" ACEO
This is a girl of abundance. She is surrounded with symbols of abundance, the green of the lush foliage, the bronze of the curtains and gold coins as a corona.
In her hand is an empty bowl.
I believe that in order to receive, one must have an openness, and emptiness... a nothing waiting to be filled.
I do not think I have mastered this nothingness, this letting go. It is very hard to release what you have been holding onto. It is hard to let go when you feel there is a lack, and you must hang on to whatever you can, because if you let go, you will have nothing. It's hard to trust that life moves on, that the universe provides, that you can actually work for and receive those dreams you have been holding onto for so long... particularly if you let them go.
Paradox? You can have your dreams by letting them go?
I think it's about having what IS, what actually is. And not holding on to tightly to that "what is," either, but cupping it loosely, so that it is free to transform into what it is supposed to be, not what you think it should be.
Only then can you be filled with true abundance.
Does this make sense or am I talking out of my, uhm...emptiness?
I painted this in order to focus myself on abundance, because I could use some of that. You could focus on it too, if you wanted to buy her. ;)
What do you think abundance is? What do you do to receive this abundance?
