Thanks for popping in! How was your day? Fruitful? Mine was. Long but fruitful.
So before I hit the hay, I wanted to present you with a particularly fine piece of scrap. Yep. One of those ones which instantly goes into the Hall of Fame Scraps of All Time! I have been sitting on it for ages, wondering how to tackle it. I mean, you can see what I see, right?
The thing about scraps like this is they are a one-off, absolutely unique, never to be repeated. In other words, couldn’t tell you how it happened, or even attempt to reconstruct it. So what do you see? I’m pretty certain everybody sitting here will see the two trees, right? But what else is there?
But what about this? Does this change anything? Throw up anything? See. Now I can see all sorts of things I didn’t spot before!
Ok. One more rotation, just to add another perspective… Well, blow me over with a feather! Now I can see a whole other scene!
How about you? No? Nothing? Squint a bit.I’ll give you a clue : Lake.
Let’s have a bit of interactive banter here. let’s call the Scrap above 1, 2 and 3. Say you can see something in the second picture, then write 2/a young girl in a forest. Ok. I gave that one away. Can you see her? Oh No!! Can you see the wolf staring at her???
This is a super exercise is letting your mind loose. Just gaze at the scrap, almost beyond the scrap, if you know what I mean. Let it blur a little even.
Even if you see absolutely diddly squat, you will have relaxed your mind for a moment and vacated it of anything else! And let’s face it – that’s a whole lot cheaper than a therapist!!!
Later on this week, I may use this scrap to make art. Or I may just frame it as is and hang it on my wall. But which way up ?!?!? That is the real question!
Love & Hugs,
