Imagine and change your life--- a little life lesson I learnt from my art.

For my today's Rise and Draw,  I got a black and white photograph.



This was the image I got. We had to pay special attention to the tones, and then convert it into colour.
Here's what I made:
 I was quite pleased with what I did.



Later it struck me---if we have a situation that's dark in our lives, that is black and white, then it is up to us to imagine it  it in a new way. We are nothing but the stories we tell ourselves. If you are feeling down about something, click a mentalpicture of it. Now look for the 'dark tones' within it. Then focus on the lighter tones. You begin to see the whole picture then!

But for the darker tones, the lighter ones would not appear so vibrant, so colourful.

We can change our lives by changing the stories we tell ourselves. By changing what we focus on.

And bringing some colour into a jaded black and white sceanrio.



Tomorrow, new drawing and new post.
Till then--look at the bright side.
