‘Wildfire’ – Day 170/365

‘Wildfire’ – Day 170/365

If you’ve ever wondered how in the hell I find the steam to keep going, well I don’t know what motivates other artists who’ve done this before me, but for me, it’s the adventure of finding new lessons every time I listen to my gut.
My heart was a mix of the emotions of close friends today, their passions, dedications and burning desires – both beautiful and destructive. .
It pulled me back to this album cover I noticed a few days back of a band I’m loving. Anyway, I was drawn to paint that album cover – Mandolin Orange – Blindfaller.
.
This is it. Well sort of.
.
At first I couldn’t connect with it – it looked like mud. Then somewhere the feel of smoke blazed through their lyrics. “It should have been different
It could have been easy
But pride has a way of holding too firm to history
And it burns like wildfire”
.
And I just thought to myself – holy shit – there’s such reward in chasing down the fires in your heart.
.
We so often let pride force us into holding onto versions of ourselves that we need to let go of so we can carve real time for that which ignites our heart. I have and I’m sure it will catch me again.
.
Money can always be earned. Not time. All you get from this very moment, are the days you have left. .
So far I’ve found by committing myself to this, new ways arise of staying energised. .
To me, that is where the real profit generation in life is. THAT is where you generate mega interest – compounding joy and real human interest.

So, today my gut guided me to this and made creating it feel brand new again.
PS: I just burnt my toast. Oh the irony😝

PPS: Mandolin Orange do a stunning cover of Bob Dylan’s Boots of Spanish Leather – mega emotion.
