Learn to surf
This morning I was out for my early walk and I found the buried gas line flag in the middle of the road. It begged to be plucked from the asphalt and given a new life in my painting. I've been playing around with cardboard lately. What a great surface to paint on and there is so much of it available. My surf boards lived their former lives as Amazon Prime boxes.
Repurposing aside, this painting is really telling of my life these days. Change is always happening but more so than ever before in my world. I'm learning to take each moment as it comes and stay focused in the present. Some days the change is downright frightening but overall, I am excited about it. I am feeling empowered. Each and every day, I am moving towards whatever is next. There is simply no other option than to grab the surf board and ride out the waves.
