After focusing on producing the first official GO Lisey notecard, I realized I had stiffened up. I had awakened my right brain and it was overtaking the creative freedom that I have been enjoying.
To loosen up, I sat in front of a blank piece of paper, several different brushes and left over paint, some pens and just started to whisk colors across the page with wild abandon.
I almost became giddy. There was no judgment. No fear. I changed colors and directions and splatted on drops of watercolor and swished some more.
During this process, I found myself grinning from ear to ear and laughing like a Kindergartner, freely experimenting with no purpose other than to have fun. Then the 5 year-old self embedded (scribbled) a note in the painting to remember just that. Have fun! What will be will be. And I managed to tame my right brain.
One thought on “Note From a 5 Year Old”
Lovely! Put that on a 10’x20’ canvas, and they will hang in the Museum of Modern Art!
