THE HANGED MAN


Apologies for taking so long to post but life has taken a few unexpected turns. I am now back in my studio producing new works so thought a good time to post a painting from the last series that expresses my current reality.


With age comes the peace of acceptance of who we are and where we are in life. The “Hanged Man’ is upside down but not worried about it. It just gives him a different perspective. This is a time to go with the flow and accept the changes that are occurring. A time to reflect upon life and his actions so far and gain a deeper understanding of what is really important.

BE YOURSELF (EVERYONE ELSE IS ALREADY TAKEN)



The warrior years are a time to figure out who you are and where you fit. It is a time to explore, experiment and be open to what the world has to offer. However one must be cautious as we are constantly being bombarded by who the world thinks we should be. The most important thing is to be true to oneself (however weird and wonderful that is).

WHO WE ARE



As we get older, particularly women, we become invisible.  If we are noticed at all assumptions are made about our abilities.  Often we buy into that myth ourselves.  But it doesn’t need to be that way.  We don’t know who we are until we see what we can do and exercising the mind and body are keys to success at any age.

FOLLOW YOUR BLISS



When Joseph Campbell coined the term “Follow your bliss” he was talking about the way to achieve happiness. Happiness is a state of mind and following your bliss is how you get there. To follow your bliss you must first know what it is and then have the courage to go after it. There are always challenges and road blocks but resiliency, purpose and a sense of optimism will serve you well.
