Kindness in the New Year
For a few months this has been floating around in my head:
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A bit Pollyanna? Ehh...maybe.
I like to think I am kind. But I do have moments when I come lashing with claws and fangs.
And, thankfully, my life is filled with kind people.
When I think of the New Year I can quickly make a mental list of Resolutions but they usually pertain to the things I don't like about myself.
Then it occurred to me.
What if my only New Year's Resolution was to be KIND?
The Q & A I shared wants to be a piece of art but I haven't been able to figure out the approach.
This morning it dawned on me I should ask all of you.
Please make your suggestions: large, small, drawn, painted, collaged...a specific color, a texture...abstract, realitisc...etc.
I would love to have your input and then I will do my best to incorporate them into the art.
(Mom - I know you want to see hands and feet.)
Drawing - 16 x 20 inches, No.2 pencil on canvas paper coated with white gesso. Image was drawn left handed and shaded with the right.
I completed this over the weekend.
Photo (not the best quaility) was taken with the computer camera and edited in iPhoto.
