A little something i rustled up for an exhibition that's happening at the end of the month C:
I wasn't really sure what to do for it then something i'd read earlier by Donald Miller sparked artytime off. It was something along the lines of "Fear is a manipulative emotion that can trick you into living a boring life", what a great muse for a picture yeah!?
Also, on a little side note in another of his books he pretty much sums up what was going through my head when i made Ursus (which is TOTALLY getting turned into a kids book soon by the way, i'll keep you posted)...
"And so my prayer is that your story will have involved some leaving and some coming home, some summer and some winter, some roses blooming out like children in a play. My hope is your story will be about changing, about getting something beautiful born inside of you about learning to love a woman or a man, about learning to love a child, about moving yourself around water, around mountains, around friends, about learning to love others more than we love ourselves, about learning oneness as a way of understanding God. We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and the resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it?
It might be time for you to go. It might be time to change, to shine out.
I want to repeat one word for you:
Roll the word around on your tongue for a bit. It is a beautiful word, isn't it? So strong and forceful, the way you have always wanted to be. And you will not be alone. You have never been alone. Don't worry. Everything will still be here when you get back. It is you who will have changed."
