"This painting began as a demonstration in a class I was teaching," shares Patrice. "The energy of creating a painting you really want to paint is quite different from painting something someone else wants you to paint.
This painting began horizontally, with my left arm circling round and round as my right arm made an infinity symbol from left to right. I was verbally and visually explaining my feelings and thoughts.
My left hand explained my frustration with seemingly re-learning lessons, again and again, feeling stuck, and seeing the same issues rising up over and over again in my mind.
At the same time, my right hand described my desire to break free of this cycle, with the infinity symbol. This symbol represents our ability to use all that we learn to "do our work" in life.
When I turned the painting vertically, I was surprised to see a heart appear. The heart symbolizes being. Be strong in who you are. There can only be one YOU. Rejoice in your sovereign "you-ness.""
