Yesterday I didn't have much time for art.. this was a quick play on an altered book page.
and today… has been pretty much a write off and one where.. I began a project that I've been wanting to do for a while 'just for the fun of it'… and I'm realising all too often how.. that is not necessarily easy when you 'think' you ought to be creating proper stuff… and any and all playing and experimenting is wasted time.
This creating every day in June challenge is making me realise what a freakin battle I create/live-inside-of sometimes… I'm aware to not make it WRONG… but just being present to it can be damb painful… and as I was struggling with the fact I just don't want to paint today . . . I simply brought my honesty to a page…
. . . it's not requiring me to fix it, make it pretty, perfect or better.
That's all I got… one thing I can say.. I'm really satisfied how this image captures how I'm feeling… and it's not requiring me to fix it, make it pretty, perfect or better.
There is something profoundly comforting even in that.

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.”
