‘Flower Power’ – Day 258/365

Notice the secret to life. When you look up at a multi-veneered, stoic wall of rock, notice the crying cracks in the facade. It is there where the tears of time leak through. It is from these weakest points where beauty and growth sprout effortlessly.

Giving myself a little break by just painting feelings and fluid memories from yesterday.⁠
Being a multi-veneered, stoic wall of rock is one thing, but I’ll be damned if some wise creator or the universe or God isn’t showing us something marvellous when it’s the beauty that sprouts from the crying cracks, the weakest points of the whole facade.⁠
It made me think..⁠
Maybe, kindness to self is one of the greatest creative acts.⁠
Maybe, willingness to play without criticism is the hardest colour to paint with.⁠
And maybe..⁠
Acceptance of the outcome as a figment of the now, not a final statement on all that you are, will be the most beautiful thing to come out of your studio.
