Joyous strength

For this painting I also tried to remain as free as possible.
The woman is standing in the center of the four directions.
In the South is the earth, with the color red.
The West is blue, the color of the element water.
In the North, the element is air, Spirit. The color is white.
And in the East is fire, renewal, with the color yellow.
She seems to be happy to be standing in her power.




After freely painting the background I had no idea how to proceed. Something was blocking inside me.
Then I gave myself permission to continue painting colors, without being preoccupied with the result.
It became abundantly clear that a woman showed herself, seen from behind.
I now realize how important it is to be aware of the back of my body, both for feeling strength and for opening deeper to the mystery.
