Of Words And Visuals😊

I open my journal to write my thoughts.

The lines, instead of falling into a neat cursive hand, elongate themselves into birds and flowers and animals… It’s like my language is finding a different story… It’s not interested in what happened yesterday, or other long drawn out tales of living, like a good journal should be… ο˜….

It is more interested in what fills my heart.

I question its timing… Like, can’t you wait till I get better paper… Better pens… A well-thought out composition? But it doesn’t careο˜ο™„… So a scene pops up on ruled paper, I know it’s not going anywhere, I know it’ll stay within the folds of this diary to be forgotten soon, like the hundreds of others that have pushed the words out of the way and grabbed hold of the visuals… Quite like an erstwhile Charlie Chaplin movie οŽ₯.

The Mess we Make πŸ˜

A cabinet that needs cleaning
But is a fun subject, nevertheless!
πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ™„

As an artist, one notices more, the good and the bad… The magical and the mundane 😊… And all of it is a creative opportunity to experiment with different mediums πŸ‘Œ

Spill, and Don’t Clean Up πŸ˜

Sometimes, it’s great to relinquish control… It’s a release from all the desires and goals.

Just put water on paper, float your favourite colours and let the magic happen!

It needn’t mean anything, or mean anything, it’s just a means to let go… And be fine with what happens.

Too often we stop enjoying the process of creativity because we have an imaginary sense of ‘expectation’ from ourself… It’s OK to just relish colours, like little kids do all the time 😊🎢

Black and White

When he paints
He becomes
a happy child
All his colours
Going wild
In an art file,
That’s his
biggest treasure
A place that gives him
Endless pleasure
And every artwork
He imprisons
with a marker
black and white
A visual barrier
Against the fights
And
Within these boundaries
His happy world lies
Wiping off his tears
Soothing
his anguished cries
