I've dusted off my paint brushes and joined in the fun that is "Get your Paint on " e-course and this weeks "homework" was to create a quilt like/blocks of colour painting.....which sounds simple enough but I found incredibly hard to do!!!
My brain has been in overdrive all week analysing and swithering.....what....blocks of colour? flat colour, shaded blocks, different shapes,all straight lines, all squares? ..and on and on!!
I'm sure it speak volumes that such a simple request could bring such internal doubts and debates and sooo much resistance! So.....already I have learnt more about myself.....the one about being rubbish at following instructions I was already pretty familiar with :)
(left over paint doodle..circles and straight lines!)
Thankfully inspirations struck whilst I sat in the quiet and still of the car awaiting my little one to wake from slumber. It struck me that I still haven't created anything to remind me daily of my word for 2011 "allow". And seems even more apt considering the resistance I've had towards doing this first painting!!
So "allow" it is on a bed of colour..can you make out the letters?!
Allow........me to follow my heart
allow......my dreams to come true
allow......my creativity to flow....
I'm linking this to Sophia's Sunday Sketches today.......pop on over and see what other lovely sketches have appeared today..hopefully with a little less resistance! :)
