This page was becoming way too loud - too many different colours, too many shapes, just a mess. Not even the addition of some circles could save it :)
So I toned it all down with a coat of gesso. There, that was much better. A little quieter.
As the page sat on my desk I thought about how, sometimes, I wish I could 'put a coat of gesso' on the world. Sometimes it feels a bit too loud. Slightly overwhelming. A bit more than I can handle.
When I'm in a crowd; when too many people are talking at once; when it's just too loud or bright or has just gone on too long, I want the world to be quiet.
Just for a bit.
Just long enough for me to breathe; to gather my scattered wits; to recharge my batteries and be ready to face the world again.
I'm joining in for the first time over at Inspiration Avenue where the challenge for the week is words.
