Anyway, for a while now (well, since January to be precise), each day I have been doing a tiny drawing in a small diary I carry around with me...it's true what they say about doing something daily for more than 21 days...it becomes a habit. It's become a little ritual, even on days that I don't feel like making art or on days when I don't have time to make art. Each space or day is only about 7cm x 4cm so it doesn't take much to fill it. I think it's a good way to be creative even when you're on the move and it's a nice record of days.
Here's a pic I took of the diary last week and a little picture of some figs that I drew on Friday.
Recently, I did another I Ching reading and I asked the I Ching how I can get through the challenges I currently face. Sometimes, it all seems overwhelming with so many problems colliding and sometimes it feels like I won't get through it. The I Ching told me loud and clear that creativity is the way. I was quite cynical when i first read the readings because I felt that art had become trivial and meaningless. Now I've had a few days off work and a chance to splat some paint about it does feel like it is a way through.
Thanks to everyone for the supportive messages on my last post and to Celestehttp://celestebergin.blogspot.com/ for encouraging me to blog. I'm not sure what the next months and years have in store for me but I will do my best to be here and at yours and to keep being creative whenever I can.
