This week’s Colour Me Positive prompt was “Dream Big”. The accompanying quotation was “If your dreams don’t scare you they’re not scary enough!” I am a realist with pessimistic tendencies so I don’t tend to dream big. When I was growing up, I had all sorts of ambitions and aspirations and I worked my butt off to achieve them. Now my dreams, hopes and aspirations are all about my kids, none just for me, and my personal goals are all pretty small scale and easily attainable. I assume that is normal for grown ups. In short, it has been a long time since I had any big dreams.
I used ink and Inktense blocks to create a little illustration of the phrase “Dream Big”. I thought the cloud-like rainbow hair accentuated the idea of dreams. I like white space in my art work and I have also been exploring negative space lately, using the latter in this page to create the text.
