October Cover Time-lapse: Find Your Purpose
I’m going straight into October without a theme, with no coherent idea of any image, idea or style that I’d like to see running through the monthly spreads. Which makes the quote for the month particularly resonant: Find Your Purpose.
Do you feel as though you’re constantly searching for something more fulfilling, unable to quite figure out what it is? I do! My art gives me an immense satisfaction, a deep sense of fulfillment because it reflects that search and the changes that I am constantly going through in my inner life. But sometimes I just end up going with the flow, with no particular plan or purpose (or theme!) in mind, allowing whatever needs to emerge, to slip quietly through. Well, that’s the way this month is looking so far … it will be full of surprises, hopefully pleasant ones.
I felt like painting something cute and less loose this time, and this is what emerged. A mouse and a raven? Who knows why. The fact that the mouse is painting itself, and the canvas is a mirror reflecting his actions, says a lot to me about the way that I view my art.
This wasn’t intended to be a deep and meaningful sketch but a quirky, fun, little one, so I’m leaving it at that! Please do visit me at YoutTube if you can, it’s a new channel and I’m in the process of filling it up, so any comments, criticisms and advice are welcome and hugely appreciated!
Enjoy your day!
