Last week, my cold got more severe and I stayed in bed for an entire week. When my energy came back, I painted this cozy little painting to celebrate my restored health.
I started with a 12" x 9" painting of a bodhi leaf from before.
I then added some words from my heart. It was a stream of consciousness journaling process so I don't recall everything I had written, but some of the words include "life always gives you what you need most, and for me it was a week in bed to relax and rest."
Golden veins for the bodhi leaf to infuse it with life and transformative light.
Highlighted some of my favorite words -- grateful, soulful, AMAZING
After the painting, I felt a lot more recharged mentally and spiritually.
