Art, faith and mystery

I don't always know where a painting 'will go'. It is almost like I turn an ear 'inside instead of outside'. Therein the mystery...Sometimes I think of things like 'contrast' and 'saturated colour' etc. Lately I think of the white spaces and how they can be illuminated. But really, I just listen to my insides...and when they start 'purring' I know I've completed the painting...
(sometimes I wag my tail in anger and hiss...hopefully when noone else is around...LOL)
Many hugs!

Ooo I love this! The colours spoke to me before I noticed anything about it! Do you think that's strange? I found it very disconcerting once I'd realised what had happened :) Funny how we 'see' sometimes... perhaps it was sensory seeing... if such a thing exists of course!!? I shall stop babbling now... it's beautiful, Annamaria. I'm not surprised you're purring :) K
