October 30, 2013--Discovering Yourself

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

I have been taking an oil painting class and our last assignment was to create an abstract self-portrait. At first I was going to paint something that was very busy and complicated. My professor convinced me to simplify the painting.



When I posted it on facebook, I asked my friends what they saw of me in the painting. One of my teammates said : *I* see YOU breaking free of any barriers holding you back from your goals! I was amazed that she saw this from the painting. When we were discussing it in class yesterday during critiques, I had Nicole's words in my head and realized that it was showing how much I have changed since I started the BLC in January. I have learned to put myself first and push for what I want. Now is the time and I am not about to close the box up again and keep myself from reaching for the Stars!

    How interesting that you chose to paint a box, and how insightful of Nicole to see that interpretation.

    Because of the ribbon, I see the box as a gift, and if it is a self-portrait, you are unwrapping yourself to and for the world.

    It's a wonderful metaphor for your Journey!
