PROMPTED PLAY | TANKA
Bloodline, friend, other
Family’s my everything
Drilled in from my Nan
Whatever form it shows up
Embrace it with all my might
Whoop whoop! I made it!
100 days of creating something tangible is mind blowing for me… not something I have been able to see through before… 30 days — just… BUT 100! What?!
Ok — can you tell I’m excited?!
A massive THANK YOU to you all who have supported me through this journey.
Your beautiful presence was felt and gifted me the energy to see it through. It sounds cliche — even saying cliche is cliche — BUT seriously…I wouldn’t have done it without this amazing community.
F a m i l y to me — through and through.
Your presence kept me accountable like nothing else has in the past.
I learned a lot about Procreate. What a tool! It certainly lifts my current skill level! Yep — a big bulk of it is the software shining through on these procreations I have shared. Seriously — it lets you select a photo for it to creates a pallette of colours to use — how awesome is that?! Would take hours to colour match using paints.
I stopped worrying about not being able to draw from my imagination. That can come with practice if I choose to pursue it. Letting that go allowed me to have so much more fun because I wasn’t in my head.
Met my favourite brush — the artist’s crayon AND favourite tool — the smudger! Blending and texture has never been so easy.
When I experienced a couple of challenging life moments during the 100 days — I found I didn’t have the same energy for words. Having the avenue to create in a different form was so very healing.
Thank’s Trista for sharing this piece — it really made me realise how much I lean on creating for comfort —
