Find your True Direction

Your true nature is stable, loving, honest, courageous and peaceful — this truth resides in all of us. When you take the time to slow down and listen to your intuition, you gain clarity and are able to pursue a life with authenticity. Sometimes the smallest of things, can ignite a passion leading you to who you were meant to be.

Lately, I have been thinking about energy. How it's our most valuable resource and the ways energy is harnessed

whether it is a force for good, or bad it's the essence of life, and life is what it's all about.

I think this idea is starting to emerge in my work more. I think it's a way to cope with things that are not in my control. When I am painting, I like to let the energy flow through me, out onto the canvas, transforming it into a force for good. 

May the color of your sign guide you. May you see the beauty of your own soul and move toward healing, light and renewal according to your true direction.

Shirley Bales, artist

Hi there! I'm Shirley. While I was practically born with a paintbrush in hand, I formally studied fine art under an accomplished forensic portrait artist and other notable illustrators in the 1990's. My favorite thing to do is paint outside. I  paint in mixed media and oil and love color! My work resides in thousands of private collections nationwide, and I am so grateful.
