Joos's journal



Towards the end of the painting process it is a good custom to have a conversation with the image.
Since her name is "She who holds the space", I asked her if she gets tired from holding the space.
She answered:
"I enjoy my body and the lusciousness of my dress while I hold the space for everyone who wants it.
So I do this in a playful way, free from burden."
She especially wished me playfulness.
After that, I continued to paint.
I made her face more cheerful and added more motion and color to her hair.
The nice thing about this way of painting is that it gives us an opportunity to have unexpected encounters with deep parts of ourselves.
