You are not broken, we are all beautifully flawed.
This small painting is part of The Flawed COLLECTION
New drawings and watercolours on paper in soft neutrals and fresh greens with highlights of bronze and silver.
These paintings have been created purely from my heart. It's a dream collection of mine come true having combined a daily practice of drawing with my shift towards abstract paintings.
They were created from a very heart centred space and came about quite unexpectedly after I wrote an inspired poem late one night earlier this year. I then knew I had to slowly but intentionally work away at creating the artworks in small moments and the ideas and concepts then flowed easily.
I often find words wanting to pour out of me late at night and by morning they're gone so when I started this poem I knew I needed to stay with it to the end, and it was then midnight. So it gracefully came to life as the words fluidly came out of me and into my journal.
This is the poem I wrote that inspired the whole collection.
I’m not broken
You’re not broken
We’re both just flawed
Beautifully and perfectly flawed
Exactly as we’re supposed to be
It’s ok to have parts of us that need to heal
We can all heal
Nature lives in an imperfect existence
So can we
It’s normal to be flawed
Because you are not less than
You are a work in progress
But also you are complete
You are enough
You can heal
You are not broken
The smallest bronze detail is like our flaws. The parts of us we don't always want to face but when we become brave enough or are forced to then we feel expansive growth exactly like the light flooding into a dark room once the door is opened. It's scary and uncomfortable at first, then it becomes euphoric and exhilarating and your quest for further transformation continues.
