Dream Catcher --by Tracy Bakkelokken
20 x 24-inches (50 x 60ccm) --mixed media painting on canvas
Hope... for some deep wishes I have for this year, and beyond. Hope in some small changes, and big changes. Hope, that no matter what, God is always on my side. :)
Hope is my word for 2016... The wishes and changes have yet to develop and shape more, so some of that will have to keep... But two words support my Hope...
Explore... exploring options for making some changes, shaping new dreams. To open up what feels like, in some ways, a rather stagnant life of the past two years and dealing with difficulties. (And of course, exploring new creative avenues & projects too! ;)
Invigorate... I feel like I've lost my sparkle. A sense of subdued physical energy--a loss of vitality, which, somehow, only now I'm really registering. Dealings and happenings of the past couple of years have drained my batteries--physically & mentally. The way I have been feeling for a while has not been good... time to take some action!
I really need some super-positive words for this new year! Hope was presenting itself to me in gentle ways the end of December. So were images of birds--often a hopeful symbol, doves especially.
My words for 2016 I have added (digitally) to this mixed media painting I created, Dream Catcher.
What are your plans, hopes and dreams for 2016?!
