Unease banished!

Following a most helpful comment from Olga Norris, I have rotated the last post's drawing right.

What a transformation ... and a relief! Now I can look at the image objectively. The monster is reduced to just a trace and there is an optimistic suggestion of growth.

This change led me to ponder on how extraordinary it is that a difference in orientation can create such a change in emotional response ... and a further thought about the link between what we see and our imagination.

Also, it brings a tip to remember!


  1. I'm glad that you feel more positive about your sketch - it has so much potential.

    1. Thank you, Olga. I don't know why I was so affected by what I saw in the original drawing. Perhaps it was the contrast between the peaceful spot we were sitting in and the strangeness evoked by the image I'd drawn.

  2. Rotate and crop. If only the mirror worked the same way!!!
    Isn't this a great reminder that nothing is ever really finished or beyond help/hope. Hmmmm.....refer back to mirror comment!

    1. I echo your thoughts about the mirror - and the optimism behind the thought that nothing is ever really beyond hope. Maybe I should delve further into my 'UFOs' box and see what else I can resurrect ...
