My painting is in beet juice red, grass green, and metallic wedding white. After the first layer was dry, I thought to add light yellow. As I’m blending the contrasting colors, that stirring in the core of my stomach starts vibrating. My tingling stomach means something good is happening, that the colors I am using and just that I am painting is doing me a lot of good. Something is lifting out of me that doesn’t belong.
