I’ve mentioned so many times that I want to keep pushing myself creatively and often that means stepping completely out of my comfort zone,
Over the last few weeks I’ve been dipping in and out of this work and now I feel like everything I add to it is unnecessary / doesn’t work / is total overkill. So it’s time to set it free and get your comments.
The idea of puddle drawings came to me when I was writing a piece of flash fiction for a competition (I didn’t win BTW!). The story of a woman regularly visiting a tree throughout the summer as her personal hideaway,
Eventually she returns one day and the little sitting area she’d gradually carved out had been ruined by bad weather. There was just mud and puddles left. It’s supposed to be sad and thought-provoking, but I don’t think I know what I’m doing writing in this style yet.
However it did give me a nice picture idea and the result is what you can see here today. This picture was dreamed up in my head, no copying. Don’t ask me how I did it or how I worked out a way to make sense of the mess I’ve drawn – I don’t know.
But it looks ok enough for me to feel happy releasing it into the public domain.
Let me know what you think!
