Sheltering-in-Place: Day 65

Image of a woman in a dress with flowers embroidered on it. The flowers on her dress are making her form. They are her arms and neck and head and hair. The's pulling along in a field of multicolored flowers. There may be a breeze. The text on the image reads, I don’t know the way, but I love a journey!

The text on the image reads

I don’t know the way, but I enjoy a journey!

One of my favorite things to say while hiking, trekking, wandering, or whatevering, was, "Follow me! I don't know where I'm going!"*

There have been very few times that I met someone with a similar mentality, or someone with the willingness to adventure along (in real life), to willingly risk getting lost just to see where we end up or to find a new way back. This is pretty much the way I live my cute little life. It's also a large part of why I love making art. Anything can be an experiment with whatever parameters at hand. Every drawing or painting can be an adventure, learning experience, chance for growth and new experiences, if I let it. 

Sometimes drawings or paintings don't turn out terribly well. Sometimes I end up searching for my parked car for an hour and a half. I don't always learn things from these experiences. They aren't always pleasant. I value them, regardless. Well, I value most of them. There are a few things I could have done without, but I choose to not dwell. There is beauty everywhere, if we can only see it.

We are solidly into repeat clothing now! You've seen this dress drawn before. It was a happy dance dress from weeks ago. Today, it's the beauty that got my butt off the couch and my mind doing something useful. I still can't believe I only paid $20 for it. Dude, I love a super sale.

* I'm not advocating anyone to live the way I do or do the things I do. I set a terrible example, lol, imho. There are times that I really am not sure how I'm still alive. Oh wait! I'm stubborn as a swear word! I remember now.
