This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 6/2/2016:

It’s plain to see that I’ve hit another one of my “switch-ups” during my art process!

Today I kicked off filming for my first ever on-camera e-course — a class for beginners on acrylic painting that I’m SO excited to release later this fall along with a redesign of Made Vibrant.

Well I must’ve taken a big swig of my own Kool-Aid because after a few hours of talking about giving yourself the freedom to explore new ways of creating, I felt the itch to switch up my own process just to see what would happen. The result is this cool little incarnation (which ironically reminds me a lot of my earlier pieces at the beginning of the year) that is decidedly a departure from the structured, angular compositions I’ve been cranking out the past two weeks.

Which got me thinking... how many times in our lives are we just on the cusp of something so delightful, so interesting, so imaginative, but we never grasp it because we’re clinging to what’s familiar? This doesn’t just go for art, it applies to so many things: cities we stay put in because they feel comfortable, trips we miss out on, opportunities we’re never offered, life changes we never consider... Familiarity is a warm blanket -- it feels comfortable and soft and safe. But sometimes we have to shed that blanket in order to go beyond what we know and discover what else is POSSIBLE.

Excited to begin another mini-body-of-work within this project and see what’s on the other side of what’s familiar for me personally. I hope you’ll consider doing the same!
