I was trying to channel some emotions and ideas... and this is a rough sketch of what I came up with. I'm not really used to doing this kind of personal work... thanks to Christina for suggesting I try.
I made a really mess sketch (as I usually do haha).
Themes behind this:
- recapturing something you feel you lost
- release and loss - a feeling of part of you escaping
- life - and how new plants grow out of an old nurse tree stump - kind of mimics life, and how new things grow upon older experiences and memories
- feeling like you're in a cocoon or a shell, and are afraid to break free.
If I manage to finish everything I have planned to do today, I might sit down and begin to paint this. I feel something I haven't felt in a while... Inspiration.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on my sketch, and if you think there's anything I should add or change. :)
