I painted this design on December 8th 2017. I was live painting at an event and it was a cold day. As the event unfolded and speakers began to tell their stories – I got a sense of the difference between how powerful an individual story can be, whilst at the same time, acknowledging how small I often feel as an individual on this spinning mudball we inhabit.
In due course – I got the chance to tell my story at the event too. I spoke about art in general, it’s power to change, coping with loss, togetherness, the free art project, doing things differently, the importance of persistence and the beauty of impermanence.
This was a really enjoyable day. I got to make art in front of some lovely people, hear excellent stories, and tell one of my own too. Huge thanks to Yetunde Hofmann and her amazing team for putting on such an excellent event.
