I read a great article last week about finding out what is happening on the inside. To make this more clear to get in touch with your subconscious mind, through art. This blog is called the Creative Guru, and she really is creative and a guru. I saw the very beautiful and talented artwork the author created and loved it. She is an artist and rendered paintings, which are just wonderful.
The author suggested that you need to have no artistic ability to do this yourself. Lacking any ability to draw at all, I wanted to accept the challenge and see what was happening inside myself that perhaps I wasn’t aware of, if that is possible. She also has promised to evaluate the deep meaning behind my picture. She also gives links to help your do it your self. Click Here for these
The process is quite simple, don’t think, just draw. Whatever you feel like just do it. Well not thinking was easy, drawing was not. I did three images to give a really clear example of both my artistic failings and my unresolved issues. I am no expert but this is what I found with each picture.
This is the short basic list of what you should look for:
- Rounded shapes and curves: indicates a need for harmony in your life.
- Straight lines & square: indicates a down-to-earth personality
- Arrows: signify some goal that you have in mind.
- Intricate patterns: indicate an introverted and obsessive nature.
This was the first one that sprung to mind, if you can’t tell they are balloons tied to a fence. I am not sure why this is hidden in my mind but it was. My interpretation: I really like balloons, they are very happy things, securely tied to a fence post where their strings will be cut someday and they will fly free through the atmosphere. Lots of rounded shapes and straight lines, I am a down to Earth person with a need for harmony in my life. Whew! I was really worried there that I might want to join a circus or a carnival or something.
Picture number 2
This was the second one I did and I am not sure if the person getting rained on is me or not , but I have definitely felt this way some days. The interesting thing was the giant head of a duck was the last thing I added for no apparent reason. I would like to know why?
This was the third one I did and it is what it is. I would explain it but really have no idea. It is the picture of a room. The thing in the middle is a mirror. The rest of the stuff I just drew and am not sure about but I am open to suggestions.
So there you have it. I spent some time on this Super Bowl Sunday, trying to find out what is on the inside. These three drawings have shown that I really don’t have much talent. However, to be honest, there was a great feeling of release in creating them. I felt happy when I was done and poor artistic ability aside, I like looking at them. I could have made a few more but wanted to get this posted before I disappear into a mass of football, commercials and food.
What I learned so far is that it is fun to stretch yourself and try new things, without question. Trying something new is fun and I encourage you to try it. I may not be able to interpret these but I respect and admire those that read these pages, so please feel free to give me a title for each picture!! Thank you very much for reading to this point you deserve a prize.
