Big - Week 4

Here we are at the end- just about of week 4 of BIG, feels like we're getting to the nitty gritty, the heart of the matter.

I'm amazed at how my fear of the white paper has gone, and my fear of the size of the paper has gone, and even the gremlin was quieter this week.

This week we have some exercises - morning pages, drawing every morning before starting the day, I'll be showing you some of those another time :-)

And then contours, first we did a self portrait by looking in the mirror and drawing the contours of our face. Then we had to do the same thing again, but this time only looking at the mirror- not the paper! freaky!!!

Here's my first contour painting:

and here's the Fearless second one

What came up for me as I painted this second one, was how I  box or compartmentilise my life, and how that destroys the beauty of me and the Joy of Life.

I'm looking forward to diving deeper into getting Bigger!! more colour more freedom more BIG.

Dear Debi, it is so amazing to watch how you are developing your creativity. It seem like you where shy coming from the cute side ... and then in the end you are so powerful and your creation are exploding wow! I am so curious to follow you - to see what comes next. Maybe cubism or abstract expresionism. In any case you have the talend!

Wow, Debi - what a journey between the two... the first is a really strong piece, but that second one takes it to another level and tells such a deep story - amazing work!
