I know it has been quite a long time since I shared with you an In Motion video (either Art Journaling or Mixed Media related). I have faced many technical difficultied in the last month or so, and several videos had to be aborted during the process. I meant they were just not meant to be.
I am a tidbit nervous to share this painting with you. Because it is like nothing else I’ve created before, but I still feel like this is me. I have no idea what this creature is. Nor why I used these specific symbols at the end.

I feel like I was in a kind of transe while doing this painting, even if it was recording, because the creature that emerge stroke me only when the painting was done, the camcorder off. What IS that ?!?
And of course, an army of Gremlins decided to show off: «you are crazy» «this thing does not look like anything» «people will think you are not normal» blablablablaaaaaaaaaaa
I got scared to share this painting, and her video. But decided to shake the Fear off and do it anyway. So here it is:
I hope you enjoyed it 🙂
