|Find Your Tribe|
18" x 18" Acrylic on canvas
Such was the case when I was told something in an offhand sort of way by an friend. It would have been very easy to get defensive (I normally do), to take the statement as a pointed direction for me personally, which it wasn't really. The suggestion to "find one's own tribe" was generalized and maybe made offhand yet I took it seriously. It had the ring of truth to it and was maybe what I needed to hear at that moment. Listen, listen, listen! And then maybe act.
The above piece wasn't exactly inspired by the casual directive that I was given but certainly my intent in returning to this hard line geometric work is a part of "finding my own tribe." The (fairly) clean lines, the colors, and the proportion of shapes all feel comfortable to me. Tribe-ish.
I hope everyone is having a good start to their week. I have another piece in process, just started today. There are a couple of hikes planned for this week and I have lunch with my dear aunt(s) and cousin. It's a busy but hopefully fun week ahead. Thanks for reading and commenting.
