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 are 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.
