Dreams do come true

I have been painting almost everyday again! Inspiration seems to strike when I least expect it!
A friend asked for a painting and gave me a few ideas of what he liked. I have to say, they were a bit out of my comfort zone. After a lot of sketches and brainstorming, I decided to let go of planning and let intuition take over. I think I was able to successfully fuse his likes and my painting style together.

And the painting above has been a work in progress for a while now. I hated how it was coming together at first. It has transformed completely into another painting all together. Again, I have been approaching this with intuition and I am much happier with it. I finally feel like my dream of finding my own style is coming to fruition! So happy!
On another note, I think I have finally reached the end of my healing process after realizing one day that I was unhappy with my life. Of course everyday is a lesson for me but I think my outlook and approach is better now. I won’t be walked all over, I won’t put my dreams aside any more and I’m truly listening to my inner voice and trying to let that guide me. Did I mention, I can’t stop smiling lately?? So happy to finally feel that way again!
