Day 12 – 30 Days Wild…

A Flower Doodle…

 

 

 

As a child I was never far from a pad of paper and colouring pens, always doodling and copy drawing, but lately I have realised how detached from drawing and colouring I have become.

I am not the worlds best at drawing, you only have to do a quick search on the internet to see the amazing talent that is out there, but I enjoy being creative and it is great therapy to get lost in a piece of art, however simple!!

So after a busy day at work I decided instead of coming home and feeling stressed about my day I would sit and do some wild doodling!! Whenever I doodle it is always flowers that I find at the end of my pencil or pen and today was no exception.

I am not really sure what inspired this doodle, I doubt any of the flowers are that true to life but on reflection the diversity of the flowers growing from a single stem and grounded from the same roots are symbolic of me as a person and the diversity of life…

Kindred Spirit…

‘My inner peace is set free by my kindred spirit.’

The cemetery is a place I frequent to find sanctuary and stillness away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This cemetery is unfamiliar to me and represents being at peace somewhere new while my kindred spirit watches over me from the other side. The cat, a stranger to me, symbolises new people in my life.

The Pathway Home…

I have finally found my way home down this new path of discovery, leaving behind the old chapters and turning the pages to find the new. This image tells of my desire to find my way on the new path that I have been embarking on, to find the courage to leave behind the past and the confidence to move forwards on this journey of self-discovery.

Mirror Mirror…

Projecting the reflection of the doorway in ‘New Beginnings’ and an image of myself as I am now in the reflection of the glass, Mirror Mirror represents a reflection of my past drawing into the future.

New Beginnings…

She has found the door to new beginnings and has passed through to the other side, bringing with it new challenges and hope.

‘As one door closes another door opens’ – the saying is self-explanatory but the gentle ghostly flow of movement rushing through this image validates the urgency and excitement of getting to a new beginning awaiting on the other side of the door. The stillness of the subject as she stands on the opposite side suggests hesitance and the apprehension that comes with change.
