I created this painting in the countryside of Beijing. The corn leaves outside the painting were painted stroke by stroke on my rice paper, their colours were rendered over and over again with my brush. It was as if it took me on a journey through the beauty of life growing piece by piece and the pleasure of the creative process step by step.
TAKE IT ONE STEP AT A TIME, let your CREATIVITY ENERGY flow! ❤️
Now if you find yourself surround by tons of thoughts and plans, a good start is to focus on each step and only allow yourself to concentrate on the current step.
There is a famous quote by Tao master Lao Tzu, ‘The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.’ Do not try to do too much at once and this allows you to keep making progress. As creativity is free-flowing energy, Take it easy on yourself and you are doing all that you can. Do not forget to give yourself some motivations for how far you have done. Take a breath in and you can return to focus on the free of the present moment.
Above all, do not give up before you have completely brought your creative ideas to life in the world. You are not where you planned to be, but it doesn’t mean you will not achieve it. You are strong, keep looking forward every day. Every little step makes your dreams come true.
TAKE IT ONE STEP AT A TIME, let your CREATIVITY ENERGY flow!
With much gratitude and love Yue ❤️xx
