This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 8/25/2016:
I had another awesome chat with my friend @stephaniehalligan earlier today about the rules that we often write for ourselves as creatives. Sometimes we get so close to our own work or we get so far into a groove that we forget who made up the rules in the first place (umm… we did!) As humans it’s natural to want to put a tidy frame around things. To line them up and box them in. We take comfort in well-defined edges and constraints. But there comes a time when those edges can start to hold us back from a world of possibility BEYOND the frame.
Whether it’s rules like “I have to post something every day” or “I can only write about X” or “my business has to make money doing only Y” — take a moment to ask yourself WHY it has to be that way.
Whatever frame you’ve placed around yourself, a situation, or your creative work… consider what might happen if you shatter it. Consider what might be possible if you broke your own rules, shifted your perspective and SHAKED things up a bit. It might just be the best thing for your creativity!
