Brincar de Alegría; gracias a Dios

Gracias. Oil on Canvas.

Gracias. Oil on Canvas.

Thank you to all who sent messages and emails to me, with kind words to say about my new work which I posted yesterday.  Many of you will know that it has been more than a year since I painted anything at all…..and as the time went on, it became ever more difficult to make that first step.

I only half know what caused such a long block to occur, and I have already decided not to dwell on those reasons; better to suck it up and move on as some might say. Such a modern expression but one which is an incredibly healthy way of living and staying positive.

So, quite suddenly, about a week ago, I felt the urge to paint again…..a feeling which filled me with joy because it had been such a long time in coming. And just as joyful was the knowledge that I had reconnected again to that power which some call the universe, and others call God. Understanding this, and  in recognition of the source of my motivation and ability the thought came to me to paint to a theme for a while……a theme of gratitude and joy. I really have no firm idea about how many paintings will come under this umbrella, but the first one is done and more will be following.

Now with these new paintings which are already taking shape inside of me  I wanted to give them a name. They will all come under the name “Brincar de Alegría; gracias a Dios”  which more or less translates to “Dancing for joy; thanks to God”. It’s how I felt when finally I could start painting again, and it seemed only fitting to give thanks where thanks are due.

Gracias a Dios.

Have a good day everyone,

Judy xxx
