The Edge of Something


I felt something today .....or maybe it was someone?

I've been waking up unusually early for more than a week now. This is great because it means I'm up and in the studio super early. As a result, I've had a mighty productive week!

I was about 3 hours into my work today and things were really flowing which always elevates my mood to 'dance' level. Suddenly I sensed a quick movement over my right shoulder. At first I thought that maybe it was a housefly or a bumblebee buzzing around. I had a look around, which didn't take long - my studio is very very small, but didn't find anything to explain what I had seen/felt out of the corner of my eye.

So me being me, I automatically assumed that I had been joined by a visitor of the spiritual kind. I have read or heard somewhere that a flicker in your peripheral vision can signal the presence of spirits. So I went with that ...lol.

I had just taken out a canvas that I've been working on for quite some time now. It has been an on and off thing with this piece... mostly off to tell the truth. Well, today it was ON. I'm not sure if my 'visitor' had anything to do with it, but I got a result on the canvas that made me feel like I was on the edge of something. I have the strangest sensations come up sometimes when I paint!
