Flying Girl with an Imperfect Offering, or A Crack in Everything*
Golden Fluid Acrylic and Pen on Moleskine Paper, 5x8"
I come back to you with my imperfect offering.
Lately I have lacked inspiration. I have lost my painting routine. When I do paint, I don't like what I do and either don't finish it, or finish it and don't show it.
I've decided it's time for me to change this.
This way of being has led me into inaction, which makes me feel worse about myself, which makes me want to do stuff even less.
Well I've decided to be kind to myself. To allow myself to be imperfect. To allow life to have cracks in places. And I've decided to take up the mantel of a painting a day once again.
In fact... I am going to do 100 paintings in 100 days, starting June 1st.
Phew! Okay. That's scary. Seems kind of cracked to me. Maybe that will be how the light gets in.
Anyone else want to join the challenge with me? 100 paintings in 100 days. It's a biggie. I mean, who knows what life will present for us in the next 100 days. That's why it's a challenge. Even thought the thought kind of scares me and I don't really know if I can do it, I'm going to take the chance and try. And even if I don't do it, I will end up doing more than I am right now.
If you want to try 100 in 100, I'll put your name on my side bar if you want do the challenge with me. And you know what? I won't limit it to paintings, either. 100 poems. 100 collages. 100 whatevers.
This cracked painting is also Illustration Friday's prompt of "cracked."
