Iterations on a theme

Monday, May 1, 2023


Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, 
but certainty is a ridiculous one. Voltaire

Many iterations of the same drawing, from paintings in my sketchbook, to purely digital drawings created with Procreate, to combining both analog and digital. These are not particularly recent creative endeavours (late 2022) as once again I find myself in that uncomfortable place where I'm not sure what direction I'm headed in - though I am confident I am heading somewhere. Where ... who knows ?

I am trying to teach myself how to be more comfortable with uncertainty which ultimately, and thankfully, leads me to the present moment because in the present moment uncertainty loses it's sting. Mindfulness and self compassion feel like strong antidotes to the negative effects of uncertainty and doubt. What will I create today is a great question.

The older I get the more I feel comfortable being a fence sitter, the more I've become an easily swayed by a good pitch gal and the older I become the less tolerant I am of people who exhort in absolutes and certainty. A Dr. Phil-ism I always loved is "no matter how thin a pancake is, there are always two sides".
