Surrender and love - a large original painting

When I think I’ve surrendered, I surrender some more. 


A couple of years ago I thought I was starting to get a handle on life, my growth had been transformative ever since I started creating again and fulfilling my purpose. I almost felt as if I’d made it. 

What little did I know was that the path to awareness or awakening or just a life you desire is never done, it can’t be ticked off even after years of trying. It doesn’t have an end goal, it is the goal. It’s always evolving and you will fail at some point, then grow, then forget about your failings but also progress at the same time, then you’ll find your way over and over again. But the next time you move through a challenge you will do so with a little less anguish and with a little more grace. 


The Surrendering collection is very close to how my heart now navigates life. It's a collection of 10 watercolour paintings from small to large, all inspired by that sense of feeling on the edge of the world when being at the beach close to nightfall and experiencing a deeply hued sunset that leaves a lasting impression in your soul.


When I think I’ve surrendered, I surrender some more.
