No sooner did I throw all these gorgeously coloured balls into the air, that I promptly dropped them and ran for cover. I quickly realised my inner critique was running the show and holding me back from sharing…anything.
My inner sound track would go something like this, ‘well, that needs more work’, or, ‘that’s a bit ordinary, not really good enough to put out there’. Sound familiar?
I don’t believe Everything you create should get shared without some editing or a little discernment. I started this blog as a way of getting consistent with my art practice, as another way to explore aspects of self expression. In the last few weeks, I have come to understand that the journey you undertake when you create, is worth sharing.
And here is a lovely moment of serendipity. The new Flow Magazine came out this week and the back cover just kind of wrapped up my recent experience and helped me get a little perspective.
‘Nearly perfect is just as good’.
Using one of the prompts for ‘Get Messy’, I am expressing emotion as colour.
and on a lighter note, playing with monochrome again and things that make me happy!
So here’s to not even close to perfect, but celebrating the journey!
