I’m writing this because Seth Godin told me to. If you don’t know who Seth Godin is don’t worry because I also just found out about him. He is an entrepreneur and public speaker who I found super inspiring because of his unique outlook on how to do business and how to live you life. My father was the one brought him up. Go Check him out!—> https://www.sethgodin.com/
From the little I know about the man, I quickly caught on that he’s not a traditional thinker, he’s a future thinker and a present actor / do-er. I appreciate that and am taking his advice, he challenged me to write a blog entry for 30-days and promises life changing results. I’ve tried blogging but never shared (See former posts) and I haven’t written anything here in about a year an a half… time time time. Flying by. That’s me thinking about the past again, which is gone, gotta remember to focus on now. This. Anyway, I’m opening myself up to the idea. This is Day 1.
Enough about that. I’m here for the art. I have so many ideas it’s hard to keep up. Over the weekend I bought 3 Medium sized canvas’ and some new super FAT brushes and have been painting some new pieces. At first, I was planning something, like…. hmmm should I do this? Should I try that? How about if I did something like this…? Then I just said fuck it and dipped the brush into the paint and got started. I decided I would figure it out on the way.
When’s the right moment to start? For me, that was it, right then, start now and adjust - the same mentality I bring to this blog entry. I have no plan for this, it is what it is. ——-
Back to the Art, the sensation of painting and not knowing exactly what I will create is part of the fun, I also just really like watching the color take hold and change the canvas. Call it what you want, stream of consciousness, freedom, all I know is that I created something, something that I felt was me free from the influence of my mind maybe “thought-less” is the word, though, thought-less in the best sense, meaning “present-FULL” and honest… to that moment, no mistakes.
Take a look at the snaps below and stay with me, no one us knows whats next so let’s keep creating, keep open minds, watch life unfold, and remember that anything is possible. . . and everything starts with you. So get started and Keep Going ***
