6 Flares Filament.io 6 Flares ×

Four days of painting transformation, bliss and angst, construction, destruction to a whole new form. The energy in the space synergistic and moving, feeding each other, feeding the soul, discarding the negative.

A whole range of emotion as the energy moves through the body and releases…day oneA dream turning into destruction/reconstruction …day twoAngst and stress, anger and further destruction…day threeDreaming images further destruction/reconstruction moving forward into spiral book form …day 4



  1. so interesting to see the process!

  2. What a transformation! I like the way you cut up and rearranged the pieces to make a different whole. Not sure what a spiral book is, but I look forward to seeing how it comes together. Jane Davies does a similar thing with what she calls her scribble paintings – cuts them up, rearranges the pieces until she likes the results better. I really must try this! Welcome home.

  3. your process unfolding is exceptional, and I love the way you cut and re arranged it all. so often I paint book pages cut them and repaint them, so many layers and so much emotion… so glad to know I am not the only one… x

  4. Wow! Fascinating process!

  5. Ahhh what did you do, liked the first photo :)))
    Curious how it is finished!

  7. I can really see the emotions moving through the piece! I love the way it ends up snaking out onto the floor.

    You are one courageous woman…thank you for sharing this journey! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  11. I have to tell you – I think you were being too hard on yourself. The sparkle can’t help but come through.

  12. An interesting and fun process, and I love the end result! It’s been a long time since I’ve created an emotional painting like that… this post makes me want to get out my paints and try again!

  13. I just love to see your work in progress … I’m always reminded of a full body cardio workout – you throw body and soul into your work … I am inspired by your art athleticism – bravo!

  14. I love the transformation. I never thought of painting emotions before. I’m glad you were able to work through things with your art. Art really IS therapy. And so are your intuitive paintings!

  15. Wow, I can’t wait to see the book form. That was so neat, seeing your process!

  16. Hi Corrine,
    This looks so fun and freeing to create. I can’t wait to see the final book. I’ve got to get a large board to paint on like that would make my life easier.
    Happy Painting!
