This is a painting that I finished last week. It’s acrylic on canvas. I had a picture in my mind for months of how I wanted it to look. It started out the way I pictured and then, it took me on a different journey. The change in direction was do to a bit of a paint spill, so I decided that the best I could do is go with the spill and see how it turned out. This is why I entitled it “The Unexpected.”
There seems to be a parallel to life here. We have a picture in our minds of how we want our lives to go, we may even have it all planned out, but more often than not it takes us on all kinds of twists and turns that we least expect, and we end up in a totally different place than our minds painted on the canvas of our brains.
It doesn’t mean that the unexpected changes aren’t good, or colourful, they are just different. It’s the unexpected.
What’s happened in your life that was unexpected?
There is hope!
