i have been working on painting pieces of fabric. One I had fun with and wrote the words "city slicker" in white after painting the fabric with bright circles. Another I did last night was practicing sunset backgrounds. I realized there is so much in making your background. It can add texture, color, and set the tone for what you place on top to make the focus. I'm not happy plopping something down on top of fabric and calling it done. I'm working on collages.
You know I realize our lives are like that too. Our background is everything in the past, it helps to shape us and make us who we are today. We can choose to let go and leave all the stuff behind or we can put a heavy load on our back and carry it around every day. Personally I am working on lightening the load. My backpack was kind of getting pretty heavy.
The weight of yesterday has been released to give me more energy for today.
It reminds me of Sue and her goals she has set.
Are you setting your pace and working on your wait-loss?
