24" x 24" x 1.5”. Acrylic, pastel, oil pastel, and charcoal on raised wood panel by Wendy Pabich.
This image came to me during a Chakra Healing binaural meditation. Creating it involved building up texture, depth, and richness through layering and mark making. As my painting process has evolved, I've honed my techniques and become increasingly comfortable trusting the process. This almost always requires committing to the work, starting out with an exciting concept, image or intention, and diving in, only to at some point find myself in the nebulous "middle" where a successful outcome is no longer obvious. It is at this point that commitment and trust become imperative. If all goes well, I'm able to tie it all together to produce a final piece that I love.
