Another Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days has begun! I am relieved and delighted that it takes place in February this year, one month later than usual. Whew! It took me that extra month to figure out my theme (The Princess Bride) and to clean up my studio in preparation for this marathon. And off we go...
This piece is completely intuitive - following the paint to see what appears. I wasn't expecting a rabbit, and definitely not some celestial constellation hare. But here he is, floating in the night sky, all ethereal and safe from foxes. Perhaps he is a piece of the super moon gracing my studio with the wisdom of the galaxy?
Since we are beginning with the hare, let's see what wisdom he has to bestow upon us...
Hares, larger than rabbits, are tougher and more solitary than their fuzzy brethren. They don't live in warrens or build nests. The young are ready to fend for themselves shortly after arrival. If your totem animal is the hare, you are swift and diligent, sensitive and artistic (awwww a perfect start to a month of extreme arting!) When you're off balance, you might find yourself being a jokester and a bit unreliable, so watch for feelings of selfishness or greed to let you know to rebalance your inner spirit hare.
It is appropriate to begin the the hare, as many cultures feature the hare in their creation stories. And now this fluffy-tailed nose twitcher is a part of our thirty day creation story, sweet reader! Isn't that a wonderful beginning?
