Hello there - whoever might stumble across my profile!
Lately I've tried to take a step back and asked myself: what do I want to do with my art? Not style. Not skills. But what do I want my art to represent.
I want my art to be something more than just pretty. I want it to have some thought behind and evoke feelings. I'm hoping you might want to help me with that!
I have an idea. It's not perfect yet but hopefully you can help me figure everything out. I want to make a series of paintings and with each painting have a little story. It's the stories I need your help with.
The paintings:There are going to be eight paintings. Seven paintings with the feeling: "falling" and one where it all "rises".
The stories:There are also going to be eight stories. Seven stories about some time in life when you were in a dark place. Maybe you were heartbroken. Maybe life was tough financially. A dark place is very individual so there are no rights and wrongs. The last story is about how you came back from the dark place.
I know this is very personal so if you want to share your story with me everything will be anonymous and be handled with respect.
I want to be a part of your project - what do I do?
- Firstly I want to say that this is so brave of you ♥
- Share your story with me. Let me know what your dark place was and how you came back from it.
- Don't worry about spelling or grammar - that's really not what this is about.
- You should know that I intend on displaying the stories with the paintings so you should be in agreement with others reading it. It will of course be anonymous.
I really hope you want to help me but you should in no way feel obligated to share your story. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
In the amazing event that there are more than eight of you who share your stories with me I will choose the eight stories that made the greatest impact on me.
