Mornings, for me are my favourite time of the day. On days like today, the sun is out (mostly) and if you’re lucky, so are the lawnmowers. Most mornings like today I find the urge to do something creative. My favourite kind of creativity is art which is mostly drawing and water colouring. I think you might like to call it a contemporary style? I wouldn’t really know how to specifically classify it because the style of art I decide to do depends on my mood, the time of the day or generally what I’m “vibin'”.
The kind of art that I have been doing recently is calm in the way that it’s as if I’m telling myself: everything is going to be okay, grab a pen and do whatever you feel, you’ll be okay. It may all seem a bit cliché but that’s the honest truth, sue me if you want (but don’t).
Today, videoed myself doing some art outside on the deck and I made it into a YouTube video – which you’re more than welcome to watch. Half an hour into just one minute. It doesn’t include my internal monologue deciding which shade of green is more appropriate to match a particular shade of yellow. I also chose to not include the part where I sneeze and as a result, throw my headphones off my head and onto the table. I’m always open to feedback.
