How to Make an Imperfect Offering
This week I've had a few chances to get to the canvas. I've started this new hydrangea series. And all the while I've had this aching feeling. Aching and disbelief at the terror and racism that persists in my country. I have felt uncertainty about how to do anything about it. And doubt that painting may be the most irrelevant (and privileged) thing I could possibly do.
And then I realized something. That at the canvas. For the past four years. I've been learning how to make an imperfect offering. How to show up. With my whole heart. Do my very best. And celebrate that.
And I think whether it is at the canvas or speaking out against hatred and racism we need to show up. And make an imperfect offering. Do our very best. Use all the creativity, skill, love, wisdom we have in us. And that as a result there will be a healing and possibility present in us and around us that wasn't there before.
