5/3/2016: Exploring

A reminder keep going BEYOND whatever we think our frontiers are so, we might just discover entire worlds we never knew. $25 giclee print available at the Made Vibrant Art Shop.

This message kept coming back to me today in everything I did. I’ve been periodically doing some design explorations for an exciting project I hope to release in a few months, and today I hit a creative wall with the project. Everything I tried felt okay, but nothing snapped into place and felt cohesive the way I like it to. Still, I kept working and reworking, exploring new angles and ideas until FINALLY I hit that perfect balance I was missing before. I realized that if I had quit when I hit the wall, if I hadn’t kept pushing past the bad, I may never have arrived at the good.

I also had the pleasure of recording a podcast interview with the AWESOME @gritandglitterco (seriously check out Lauren — she has the sweetest, most authentic energy!) and at the end of our conversation we landed on the topic of evolution. I’ve not only evolved so much as a person the past few years but my business has gone through so many different iterations and evolutions as well. That is what I think business (and life) is all about though. Expanding and growing and changing beyond what we see before us.

Even today’s art piece is a living representation — that layer of white graphite marks was a new style I wanted to try just for the sake of continuing to explore my creativity and push my own boundaries.

Let today be a reminder: If we keep pushing, keep exploring, keep going BEYOND whatever we think our frontiers are so, we might just discover entire worlds we never knew.
