‘Calmpletely’ – Day 335/356 – R2100

‘No’ doesn’t always have to be a bad, negative word. It can be an absoluteness, a coral wall that presides over your oceanic state of peace and calm. A reef causes currents too, that doesn’t make it a rift.

ORIGINAL COPY POSTED ON INSTAGRAM DURING THE CHALLENGE

So this should technically be yesterday’s official new painting (you can read that post on why yesterday was the first day this year that I broke all my challenge rules).⁠

These paintings combined with my mood sometimes just name themselves. This one’s understanding is still coming to me in waves 😛🌊, but I get the feeling it has something to do with the peace and stillness that can come from saying ‘no’. ‘No’ doesn’t always have to be a bad, negative word. It can be an absoluteness and an unwillingness that presides over your state of peace and calm. Just. ‘No’.⁠

If you’re feeling overwhelmed this week (can you feel the Silly Season yet?) give yourself some ‘no’s’. And when they’re followed with ‘Are you sure?’ – the answer is ‘calmpletely’.💙⁠
