The Sense of Completeness
Knowing when I'm done
Day 30-August 6, 2021-30/30
I cannot believe I did this. Bigger, I cannot believe how fabulous this project turned out to be. Fabulous in the sense that I loved it all so much and learned so much, feel like I’ve grown astronomically.
I love today’s piece. It grew from an idea—a kaleidoscope—to something more core, the goddess and her energy. But I wasn’t happy with it early on; I just kept playing and working until she appeared, until I got the clarity I was looking for, the images framed in a way that felt natural.
Even then, when I was done with the alcohol inks, I wasn’t happy with a small patch of circle around the goddess. But I was working with beach rocks and a protective semicircle came through, better than any color could have been, and now I feel so good. I stuck with the image until it was complete—not “right” not “perfect” just complete.
That feels big; the awareness of when something is complete, felt deep inside.
I am proud, happy, joyous.
Until tomorrow... For Your Consideration...
When you complete something big, how do you honor it and yourself?
