An artist is especially thrilled when she is in the groove or a Fine State of Mind. For, some days in the studio, life’s everyday distractions are prominent and won’t leave my subconscious. Indeed, it is my subconscious that creates my best art. The abstracts that evolve through no predisposition of thought, from just doing, acting seem to be my best work.

I must leave the worldly thoughts behind for surely the wrong attitude, mood will not be present in my studio. It is not to say, worldly thoughts are of a bad attitude, but it is not one of free spirit – to imagine, to create. For my motto is Dream. Believe. Create. Succeed.

You’re just letting it happen.”

“Control your vibrations to be the master of the own harmony.” 
Suzy Kassem

I paint intuitively which means I don’t choose the content, it chooses me. I can definitely say my best creations are when I let my hands do the talking. Additionally, it is when, I channel my unconscious energy into my current being that drama and excitement come to life. Putting me in a Fine State of Mind.

Fine State of Mind – Oil Abstract

I titled this painting “Fine State of Mind” since it represents a very successful and productive weekend where I created 4 paintings. Surprisingly, I was satisfied with all their outcomes. Additionally, I like this painting with its black and grays, balanced by the rare use of mauve and pink gracefully intertwined with turquoise and other blues. It has a softness where the colors easily blend into one another. A serene quiet peaceful feeling – just like a Fine State of Mind.

APPLY WITHIN by Suzy Kassem”

“You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world –
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars –
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself

“Your mind can be your enemy or friend. If you always follow your heart, your mind will feel neglected. If you follow only your mind, your heart will never forgive you. Never ignore your conscience, yet always be conscious of reason. Make your heart and mind friends and you will have peace of mind throughout life’s seasons.” 

When are you in your Fine State of Mind?
