First Painting of 2019
My first painting of the year ~ GO YOUR OWN WAY ~ was inspired by an exercise created by Tamara Laporte of Willowing: Lifebook 2019.
As you know, I like to paint whimsical characters of my own imagination – and I’d never tried to paint a unicorn before!
On the top edge of the canvas, I painted the following words:
All the beasts obeyed Noah when he admitted them into the ark.
All but one.
Confident of his abilities the Unicorn said: “I shall swim.”
So many of us are taught to follow the leader.
To go along.
To do what everyone else does.
Unicorns have to do things their own way.
They go about it quietly and the world appreciates their authenticity, their rareness and their shine!
GO YOUR OWN WAY is a reminder to myself ~ and to all of you ~ to continue to go your own way.
Be the Unicorn, everyone!🦄
