Walking in the Deep
Before I was able to conceptualize this piece I have felt an immense sense of frustration.
For not coming up with concepts quickly.
For stressing myself out on what tools to use to get the intended effect.
For being stuck with the branches.
It was 6:10pm. The deadline is the next day.
I wanted to cry. But I take a rest instead.
And it is while resting that I said to myself that God will not leave me.
Then I had an AHA moment.
Just like that.
This digital painting is done entirely in Illustrator.
It is a mural. Though my teacher says it’s less likely one because of the mood. It’s somber.
Are murals suppose to be happy?
But he seems fascinated by it.
I was feeling sad I suppose while creating this. Emotions always have a hold on me in whatever I do.
Sometimes it gives me good inspiration. Other times it only leaves me emptiness.
I am so thankful to the Lord. For giving me strength. For easing the pain in my wrist.
For walking with me.
Art will always be my passion.
It may be draining at times.
There might be days when nothing bears fruit.
The result might be hurtful to bear especially by futile remarks or criticisms.
But keep on creating.
Create for the sake of creating. Not to impress.
As Julia Cameron says, “I will take care of the quantity, God will take care of the quality.”
Have a blessed weekend you all!
