Intuitive Process Painting is painting without limits. We are all inherently creative and long to create. But often we are taught that in order to be creative we must have some sort of skill or talent that produces something good enough to be called “Art”. This belief can cause one to be too afraid to explore the creative process even though deep down their soul yearns to express itself.
Intuitive Process Painting is about reconnecting with that pure, authentic and creative urge without judgment. The goal of the process is to follow what is alive in you, trust your intuition, and explore/experiment with freedom. This is not about creating a pretty picture or a “work of art” to hang on the wall. It is about enjoying the journey of creative exploration through painting.
Through painting we travel the vast landscape of our inner worlds. Where everything is possible and nothing has to make sense. We get to see where we censor ourselves, stop our flow, and say no to life impulse bursting through us. The thought forms that thwart our flow in a painting are the same ones that thwart our flow in our life.
Creativity is a benevolent process that always leads us where we need to go for greater freedom and healing. What ever we are experiencing: delight, doubt, anger, happiness, sadness or fear the brush can handle it. Our challenge is to just relax into the unfolding and enjoy the exhilarating ride.
