Loving the brushes after so long working with scrapers. I’m thinking about the messages from the last rose of the season as I look at this painting. It connects to the spiritual work I’m loving these days. It’s all about letting go. As the last rose of the season falls i imagine it reminding us to let go of so many things: our cherished thoughts and opinions, our likes and dislikes, our self criticism, our busyness. What do you want to let go of most to experience true peace of mind?
