detail of something bigger :)
I've recently discovered - there is a sea creature that has my full attention - the Sea Lily or Crinoid. Its a feather and its a flower and it lives under the sea. My love for the sea has never waned, but to think there is a bird like creature that lives with the fish. I mentioned in an earlier post that I was practicing and thinking about something with feathers that leads to something bigger. And of course if you follow this blog, you know that the sea has a special place in my heart. This painting isn't done, and its in is very early stages, but I feel this amazing lift and momentum that there is a bridge that I have just stumbled upon that brings together these two very different things - My things - and makes sense of them as one.
A gust of wind in the sails, momentum in a direction that is not for the faint of heart. Exploration is for the bold and the brave. Following a thread of an idea can lead to nothing or it can lead to something bigger. Momentum is the force that moves us forward into the unknown and on to the difference between the calm and being swept away in the current.
Thank you Linda Sivertsen (Book Mama) for putting these words in regard to momentum so eloquently -
"That’s momentum for you - you work and work to build it, and at some point it starts to build you. It starts to lift you to your next level, so you can create your next level work."
I hope you are living bold and brave and finding the wind in your sails and exploring things that seem different and grand. Happy Friday everyone!
