Grow/Sun and Shadow. 04/100 Days Creative Challenge
acrylic on paper
04/100 days creative challenge
I am taking this challenge as an organic one. Much like this drawing. Each day will grow out of the last one. Each painting will come from the last one. Each one leads to one. Like baby steps, leading to the end of the journey.
I don't know where I am going when I take my first step. At each step I look and evaluate where I am and what looks like the next best step. I ask myself, do I like where I am going? Does where I am going feel right? If yes, I continue. If no, I take a look and see if there is anything that I DO like about where I am. I go off in that direction. Or I see if I can adjust it somewhat to fill my needs.
Or I scrap it and follow some other dream/desire/necessity.
I don't have to know where I will end up. I just have to know who I am, what is most important to me, and that I will keep going until things start working out and making sense.
Babysteps get us where we want to go. We don't need to have the whole journey figured out when we start.
