Sea Legs


Sea legs - the ability to walk steadily on the deck of a boat or ship. The phrase is used as a metaphor for adjusting to living/travelling at sea.

Lots of emotional shifts happening this month. I seem to be moving in my painting and my life right now without the luxury of knowing how things will look when this trans-formative time is through with me.The holidays are always an interesting time and so I work with the erratic emotions bubbling within as they arrive on the page. It's been quite a journey hanging out with my shadow and my sluggish nature (a familiar place for me) as unexpected bursts of movement and light surprise me. Keeping it all in one painting as it occurs helps me develop my sea legs.
