Day 14: Things - Growth
There are so many things in our lives that have a whole picture we can’t see, either due to our inability or our unwillingness- just like a tree’s roots.
This painting was inspired by trees. I’ve seen many diagrams of trees, and to my surpaie, the roots always expand farther into the ground and soil than I think. However, it’s something I don’t think about, because I can’t see the roots below the ground and in the soil, I can only see the tree’s trunk and branches.
I think growth can only really be recognized when we fixate on where we have come from versus where we are (our roots versus our branches). We can only have a strong body, and long branches of our roots are able to hold our weight. Remember everything you’ve experienced up until now, has helped you continue to grow. It’s important not to forget those experiences, and try to dig them out of our never ending memory, in order to become stronger for the future.
