As the heart opens compassion  unfolds and love leads to gratitude and joy.  Oh to hear the heart song and to follow its tune into authentic life.

I got a day behind as supplies are hard to find, and I had to find art masking fluid. Then I find out it ruins your brushes, so found a tutorial on it! Make sure you soak your brush in soap, wipe, then use the fluid, but then clean right away. Ok…breathe. This will be my third attempt :-) excited to see what it’s going to look like. My heart is pounding with excitement! Fun!

I couldn’t find the topic for day 8, so I upload my day 8 here, ^_^.

I didn’t paint for a few days, but this morning i just had to,

I have used a white candle for drawing the symbol. First I’ve drawn the Sacred Symbol freehanded and painted the centre of my paper ‘golden’, by mixing yellow with a tiny bit of purple, Thank you Whitney for that, ^_^.
I didn’t want the symbol shown white, but with a soft tone and with the candle used over the golden watercolour, I could keep that colour.
The colours then took their own plan, and first I was dissapointed and wanted to take the page out. But I splattered some white over it and then desided to use also gold paint. And after it was dry, and I took some pictures, then it hit me…I LOVE IT!!!!

And when I put it on my table in my artroom, the sun changed the yellow into a perfect golden glow.

Here is my day 9 painting, Strenght of Heart. The photo isn’t great, had to use flash, and the colours lookreally off. The real colours are more intens, vibrant, like fire.

Today we are inspired by the West African Adinkra symbol for “strength of heart.”

This symbol can help you when you need to make a tough decision to FOLLOW YOUR HEART…which often means not following LOGIC.

Tune in to my blog, where I share how my heart spoke to me BIG time leading into 2012: http://whitneyfreya.com/2014/01/26/9-in-the-painting-meditation-challenge/

Thank you, Steven C. Anderson for your music!
