What can happen when you are willing to experiment

willingtoexperiment

In my last post about Express It Month, I shared some of the work I’ve been making as part of the experiment into expressing feelings directly through art. And because it hasn’t just been me doing this, I wanted to share some of the creations of the people who have also been participating, both on Instagram and in my private Facebook group.

I didn’t imagine the idea would be as popular as it has been, and am so glad not just to do it in company, but to witness and hear from people who have found it helpful on their own creative path.

Express It Month is now available FREE, to begin at any time you like!

So here are some of the diverse pieces that have been generated as a result of the experiment! What I love is the uniqueness that comes through in each one. I am starting to suspect it’s not as hard to make art that’s unique to each of us as we can often think. Get ready for a visual feast!

Pretty excellent, right?! I’ve been so enjoying how experimental people have been willing to be, and finding the courage to share what they’re creating, especially since expressing personal feelings openly can feel very vulnerable.

    Hello, They are all so different. Wonderful. I tried different materials but I always seem to go back to my sketch journal. I like the quietness of working in my book.it is so easily portable so I do a lot of sketching outside which I very much enjoy. I travel a lot. We have no home or belongings just our car. I bring a paint supply and drawing supply suitcase but when we go over seas it’s much easier to bring a travel set of water colors and pens and pencils. We go using Air BnB furnished apartment to furnished apartment spending 2-4 months at a time in each place. We found it cheaper than our home without home hassle of lawn care etc. It i is cheaper than driving a camper around and much more comfortable. we get to see amazing places which is really inspiring. Thank you for reading this Tara and draw or paint on .

      Sheryl I love what you say about the ‘quietness’ of working in your book. Such a lovely way to put it. I’m also fascinated by your lifestyle choice! Am about to have my first Airbnb experience and find myself thinking more and more often about living a different way. Owning a home is wonderful in so many ways, and it also comes with ongoing maintenance and other costs. Your way sounds like a fantastic way to see the world with very little holding you down. I’d be interested to know if you ever miss having a home of your own.
