Yesterday’s lily drawing is complete. Onto drawing a bird of paradise flower.

This is probably the first time I have drawn the entire flower using draft lines only. Without inking any lines along the way.

When I started this session, I actually wasn’t feeling very confident in drawing. Just a random feeling and thought. And for the first few lines I considered switching to drawing another flower. Something less intimidating.

But I decided against that by telling myself that if this drawing didn’t work out today, then it would be just practise and I can do it again another time.

So I continued. Uncertain about each line I drew.

With the bird of paradise flower complete. I actually really like it. And reflecting back on it, it was pretty straight forward to draw.

The world: ignites in me, a sense of curiosity. My mind does not settle until it can comprehend, until it understands. For the physical world, creation has always been my enduring method of choice. For the spiritual world, all-encompassing practices like yoga and meditation, a belief in a higher energy, and writing have always been the soothing and balancing tools I have returned to, to re-ground myself. This is my journey of self-expression. Through written words and different forms of art. To my soul, my inner essence.
