Today I begin a mural for a restaurant. I’ve never painted a mural before, but I have no worries as hands have been extended in my direction, guiding me, coaching me, and encouraging me. Experienced hands of artists, photographers, and other professionals.
One artist friend of mine loaned me his sacred brush, one he’s used on many murals. My first impression of the brush was that it was old, worn, and too small. When I asked him about it, with all seriousness he looked at me, holding the brush in front of his hand, then looked at the brush and said, “Kristy, this is a GOOD BRUSH.” I knew I was handed something special and I would need to hold and honor it with respect.
The brush is now my symbol of the Holy Grail, “A symbol of the spiritual wholeness that leads a person to union with the divine.” In moments I will put this brush in my hand and begin priming my canvas – the patio wall at Park House Cafe in Springdale, Utah.
