Wide OpenThere is something very humbling and vulnerable about hanging something that you’ve made up on the wall for everyone to see. Sharing it with others transforms it from something that you created and love into something that can now be judged. It’s suddenly wide open to other’s opinions and judgement. What will other’s think? Will they like it, will they hate it? How could they possibly understand where it’s coming from? The emotion involved in it’s creation? Life is art. It requires a humble vulnerabity to share the canvases of our life.
Tori decided to ‘help me with my picture’ when I was about half way done with this one. Oh no! Now what? It no longer looked anything like what I had planned on it looking like.
This unintentional collaboration was a lesson in Life and Art. Things in our life don’t always go as planned but we can still try to make the best of it!
Sometimes you experience things that cause you to stop and thankfully sigh in amazement….
