Some more wiggles to get lost in, just a different kind. Still working on getting the balance between the figurative and abstract elements, still aiming for it to be both at the same time.
Anyways, this painting is majorly influenced by Theosophical teachings, particularly those documented in Thought Forms (super old book (1905)). There’s a page that covers what different kinds of affection looks outside of our body, or essentially what we emit when experiencing affection. They drew a kinda of 2 toned pink/red floating oval, so this is my take on it.
Currently working through a meditation block for creativity. So far it has focused on two techniques. A body scan, which is a popular mindfulness exercise encouraging you to tune in to your physical body by focusing on different locations. And visualization, this time of my ‘creative spark’ as a glow which starts in the chest and then takes over my body, the room, the street etc etc. The second one is strange, it kind of makes me think of a virus starting to possess someone (sorry last thing we want is more viruses).
These sketches are straight after 1o minutes of meditation. The one on the left is my first (not so interesting) reaction, then I began to develop the drawing more. These drawings were a reaction to a phrase used in the meditation, which was ‘you may begin to feel your mind expand’.I thought it was strange but it caught my interest.
Yes, my ~quartine diary~ a sneak peek into my lockdown thoughts. And also a starting point for this year and being freer (didn’t know that was an actual word but google says so) with my compositions, as they often spend too long cooking in my head before there’s anything visual!
