Last night I drew by candlelight, I don't have a bathtub but what I got from this was the same minus getting wet. My friend Em from www.wearewild.com.au made the candle. She hand makes these candles with soy wax, scouts for recycled bottles, researched the best wick and found one that burns beautifully, it even makes a crackling sound. Why do we create, make, draw? I do because I have to. My art helps me understand myself and what can be more important than that? Not understanding ourselves is the source of pain.
Over the last 6 years I've met like minded people, who have connected with me through my art. And that's important as constantly being in the company of people who don't 'get you' can often trick you into being someone you're not. Sometimes because you want to be nice and fit in and other times because you're human and how we're taught to communicated is to listen and respond to a target audience.
