The Star of the Fireworks

 "The Star of the Fireworks"

8 x 10 in acrylics on art board canvas

I played with the freedom of color and palette knife yesterday. :)
It took me a while to give it a title, but then I saw the little yellow star and so its name. 
This is how I started painting my "Spirit Art" paintings years ago - just whatever colors caught my attention and how I let my brush take over. I would look at the finished work and when I saw the spirit of its essence I gave it a title. It may be how I want to paint again - no pressure...no worries about pleasing anyone...and it's fun! :)

"Sunshine Wind"

 I have been writing and painting most of my life. I have had this idea for a long time and finally started yesterday painting using symbols from my poetry, lyrics, journal writings, etc. I used symbols from, "Sunshine Wind," a few lines here:

"My heart lies on a rainbow

Above a river of gold,

Leading to a place behind the sun

Where young never turns old."

(copyright by Nancy Shewchuk)

"Sunshine Wind"

The entire poem can be read on my website:


Click on the "Automatic Writing" category and then on the "Misc." link.

My plan is to keep painting using symbols from my writings and turn them into a book.

This is an 8x10 in acrylics done with palette knife.
