A Leave-Taking

Sometimes I stray from my gut. 
As a solution to feel more centered 
and hone my intuition, 
I am making more art. 
Art that is immediate, 
without over thinking or a set plan. 
What emerges when I paint, collage, and draw without expectation?

Yesterday a hint of spring was in the air and this little painting emerged from my  imagination.
