I had no idea about what I was painting my first day of working on spirituality. I struggled to grasp its meaning on the second day as I stared, painted some, and set it aside for later. The third day I felt that I should change the colors and some of the shapes. The original somewhat whimsical picture of cowgirl boots and big toes painted in a sandal with gold nail polish just kept feeling too silly. I began to see a swirling mass of spiritual energy resembling chakras and a higher self. The colors of purple for spirituality and turquoise from my own Native American ancestry became a cone shaped hat for protection. The colors also depict a spiritual aura. Finally, I felt that this painting was finished.
