So April’s Monthly Makers theme is spring. Very challenging! I’ve spent the whole month trying to come up with something good – I had a thousand ideas that I wasn’t super exited about, so finally I just decided to sit down in front of a blank paper and start painting aimlessly. I don’t know about the result, but what a great feeling! Hands-on, stress relieving, etc. It struck me as I went that this is not the first time I paint without a plan – it’s how kids paint, isn’t it? Or how kids do just about anything. We should act like kids more often.
So, how does this relate to spring? one may ask. Well, idk really. It’s just abstractly inspired by it. The colours are kinda springy, and I think the strokes look a little like flower petals fallen to the ground. As I said: probably not gonna hang this on my wall, but I definitely hope I’ll continue using aimless painting as a creative practice in its own right. I guess the end result shouldn’t always be in focus!
