Water the plants.

oneword zentangle

It’s so easy to forget to water the plants.

“The plants” being, in this case, everything or anything, whether that’s making art, walking, eating well, filing taxes on time, getting enough sleep.

Remembering to water is my goal this year. Just one simple goal that encompasses so many things.

One of the things I’m trying to do is make one small piece of art every day, whether it’s an ACT or a postcard sized painting, a doodle, a zentangle, a mandala, a page in my art journal, just… whatever. Just half an hour at the art table with pencil, ink, paint and paper. Not for sale, just for me.

I thought I’d start with a little visual reminder.

    I love the “One Word” resolution, Rain. Do you mind sharing the “Water” word with me? As I was reading the original post you had about the Word, I was contemplating what my one-word resolution was, since I was mulling over the usual suspects: Exersize, find a job, save money, ride the bike more, finish training horses…. and “Water” popped into my head. It helps, of course, that I was reading Game of Thrones, recently…. Water: Not only does it mean ‘tend the things and people in your life’, but water is soft, yet incredibly powerful. It’s easily deflected, but unstoppable, powers the world, nurtures all living things, yet resculpts solid rock. Even before I can order a necklace from you… Water is my word for the year, too. May we all flow like water, and be unstoppable.

    Such a pretty doodle! 🙂 And a great reminder, to develop your SELF, too.
