One of my creations in my newest collection, the Elephant. When I start a doddle like this, I never quite know how it’ll turn out, but they always seem to form a pattern and the colors all seems to work out just right. This Elephant has receive a lot of attention via my Red-bubble store. It’s awesome to think someone somewhere is wearing a T-shirt with my design on it and others have purchased some stickers and cards as well. It’s just awesome, I put positive vibrations into my art, creating them with love and now my creation is…out there… I like to believe that positive energy is still spreading.
Have a Happy!
I have always been a doodler, give me a pad of paper and I draw something. I love shapes, patterns, and nonsense. People are always stating that they wish they could draw and I tell them, “Yes… you can draw.” It becomes this back-an-forth banter between me and whomever I’m talking to. Everyone has the ability to draw, it’s the brain, the mind, the ego that tells them, I CAN’T. Turn off the brain, and let the hand move. Don’t judge your form of expression, It’s your form of dance, it’s your form of song, it’s your creation not theirs and you are a wonderful singular creation and what comes out of you when you doodle is one of a kind.
A doodle for me is another form of meditation, it’s the connecting and creating and being in the present moment. It’s often an enlightening experience when you sit down to create something, you can see what place you’re emotionally in by what comes out on the paper. Try it, sit down in a quite area, paper and pen, and just create…. create….. don’t judge… be the line, be the circle, be the squiggle….but most of all, just be… and breathe 🙂 never forget to breathe.
After a stressful work week, this is what came out today when I sat outside to decompress and doddle. I will place my chakra umbrella over me and not let others and their grumpy attitudes affect my happy place .
Mentally imagine a rainbow of bright beautiful chakra colors surrounding you right now, no matter what may come your way, you can always pause and go back to this happy protected place. The KEY is to remember to GO there, pause before a meeting, pause before answering the phone, pause before a response to someone, just pause… and be still. Remembering that we are all doing the best that we can do in our current state, sometimes we are more balanced and calm, and sometimes we are just simply reacting from our human side.
Wishing you a day of peace, calm and joy!
