This is exacly what I believe happend with my self-portrait. I eventually finished it, and can be distinguished from 'imcomplete work', but somehow I feel is not in its 'complete form'.
Lets remember the original photo I based myself on to interpretate my self-portrait:
Is not perfect, but, hey! Who is looking for perfection?

"When you feel you are being moved by the creative spirit, you are in fact being moved by the divine feminine."
Many of you like myself enjoy watching videos on the progress of a painting, from the sketch to the final result. Unfortunately, I have no means to do that at the moment, but I have recorded a little video on my iphone to show you the nearly finished result of this little project; here it is.. (I hope it works!)
Please forgive me for not having finished this painting, but I have not been able lately of staying up late..
I really hope some of you will get inspired by this post and thank you all very much for reading....x

I am sure you can spot the difference...
Which one you like more?... What does it tells you?... Are you into faces?.... I love painting faces... Like Tam Laporte (I am sure most of you are familiar with her great art) of willowing says, I am getting addicted to faces...arrggggggrrrhhhhhhh... I love seeing them coming through the paper...
Please feel free to share your findings....and......, keep painting.

A part from the hard and extraordinary way of living of the nomads (I remember feeling sensitive when being thought at the school), what it really touched my heart was to see the photo of this woman, Aisha, a forty-six year old Berber (yes, forty-six, will you believe it?), who together with her family, her oldest son Mohamed (32) and Said (15) are on a journey they make twice a year to ensure that their animals (usually goats, sheep and camels) get the best land for grazing.. In an average days’ work, Aisha will spent 12 hours trekking across some of Africa’s most daunting terrain… Uuuuuuffffff!... (did I mentioned to you I had a hard day in the office today???)… My goodness me! Life is really hard for some human beings… How many things do we take for granted now days????
Once again thank you all for reading my thoughts, I really appreciate it… This journey in intuitive painting and awakening consciousness would have never had begun without you, and cannot possible continue without you either, so stay tune… and, let’s don’t forget:

The left side of the brain never gives up and keeps nagging our right side for attention… Although, both halves are connected and involved in the thinking process, the left side is believed to be critical and analytical.., It has always something to say and louder… It also believes is the most important of the team…
As often as I can, I try to be attentive to these mental quarrels and I consciously make the shift to my right side of the brain (the creative and intuitive half !!). By practising shifting the awareness to the right side, I do not intent to neglect the left side, in the contrary, I recognize its noise, but I ignore it, as this is the best way to keep it quiet… Nevertheless, sometimes is hard to be so attentive, and I come back to what I have always known best: getting involved in a mental dialogue with my ‘thinking’….arrrggghhhhh!.... But, but, but… wait.., wait…, this time with a difference… I took a deeply breathe, and consciously stopped the mental dialogue… I observed and acknowledged my thoughts … Then, very calmly, I took my drawing pad, my pencil and some watercolour crayons and very simply said to my left brain: here you are, now, instead of wasting so much energy nagging my head so persistently with staff I do not want to hear, you are going to focus in directing my hand in whatever way the right side brain tells you to go, so we can produce some art here… This will definitely keep you quite... Let’s paint!
And.., guess what? Another one of those magical moments I have mentioned to you before, it happened again… Time lapsed, and I was there, in the zone… I just kept drawing until early hours into the morning, as usual!!…
(I wrote the above last night but couldn't post it, so while at my lunch break I am posting it now).. Thanks again for reading...x

Yes, I believe that we all have male and female energies within us, but somehow we have lost these parts of ourselves... Perhaps one of the most difficult task would be to know how to reclaim this lost... Maybe if we would know how to develop these energies fully, we could live our lifes in total bliss.
Lets don't forget that our female aspect is our intuitive self, our deepest and wisest part. One must learn to listen to her carefully to be directed in the right direcction at all times. The male aspect is action, our hability to do things...
Just imaging for a moment the total unison, the total union of these two energies, working together within ourselves.. As they say, this process must certainly be the basis of all creation... Mmmmmm... The thought is just so powerful... It really energise me, like it did at that moment in time, when this painting was created...
