New: Meditative Abstracts

It’s the weekend! Hope you had a good week.

Mine was busy, if not turbulent, but more on that later. I wanted to share two of my latest abstract paintings, fresh off the easel.

Both pieces stem from meditative beginnings. I am trying to tap more into my intuition and inner guidance since it really invigorates the creative process. I am realizing things about myself that have changed over the years. The most obvious one that I’ve found has been embracing abundance. I used to shy away from having too much good in my life. Maybe you can relate? I was afraid that with gains, comes loss. That happiness is fleeting so why strive for it. I realize now that our thoughts can greatly impact our reality.

These days, I am more interested in abundance than restrictiveness. How has this manifested into my daily life? I allow myself to have the small things that I want. I eat well. I laugh more. I share and give more of myself to people I just meet. And in the studio? Well, I’m keeping my inventory stacked with fresh new canvases ready for me to explore. No more holding back. No more fear.

And speaking of fear. I faced mine this week and completed an abstract painting in oils. It was during the 6-day Master Painting class with Igor Shipilin. My painting along with all of the other completed works from our cohort will be open for exhibition starting Saturday, February 7th at 7pm N2N Gallery, Nation Towers. All are welcome to attend the opening and view our creations!

That’s me. What about you?

  1. I love these Amira! And how awesome that you took a workshop with Igor Shipilin. I’m not familiar with his work but must check it out after seeing that piece on Facebook! I’m happy to hear you’re going to start using oils! You are, right? 🙂
