A study in severity, and softness, sentiment, and novelty. Dark and light, pushing and pulling together. Harmonizing. An abandonment from the every day; welcoming a different perspective and responding.
Energetic. Vibrant. Open. Wild. You can feel the warmth. You’ve worked hard to take back the strength. Feeling connected to yourself for the first time in a long time. You have made yourself vulnerable, and you are confident, and glowing on the inside. Raw beauty.
Collecting the pieces, to form a new shape. Some are big, transformative, and loud. Others are subtle, and move with your every breath. There is weight here, and presence, and the time taken to form the new picture is significant.
A love of the elaborate. Unabashedly expressive, in both body and mind. No longer feeling the need to minimize, or hide, your lush and grand nature. All of the pieces, fitting into one. Comfortable with yourself, your thoughts, where you were, and where now you excitedly run forward to.
You lay it bare. No more filters. No more covers. You know exactly what you want, and you are not afraid to admit it. Your feelings are raw, and for the first time you are comfortable. You are exposed.
Nothing stays the same. Across the world, all four corners are different in every element of design. The spice of life. The love of variety and accepting the individuality in all of us. No two are the same.
You are in the moment, relishing it, enjoying it, comfortable with it. And then it changes. Paths diverge. Minds wander and wish for more. At an intersection between was and will be; slight misdirection, but still in keeping with the ultimate goal.
The second iteration of this canvas representing a willingness to change. If it does not move you in some way, you need to replace and redesign. A change of technique embraced, this canvas also represents duality.
Appreciating the value of time, and the acknowledgement of how good something is after taking a long break from it. A visceral need; sometimes the absence of something is more important than its tactile existence. Recognizing the thing that you’ve yearned for all of those years, and honouring it going forward, forever.
