This weeks host of the drawing challenge is Patrice and her theme is "upside down" with the question "what turns your world upside down?" For this week I just can't decide what to answer or which way to take it… My first thought -of course- was that I immediately thought about the really bad things that can happen to you, like loosing someone. Which really turns your world upside down, or in my case when I lost my mother: after 3 months it just hit me: the world keeps spinning… Then I broke down, nothing changes, I'm still doing what I have to do and so is the rest of the world, like nothing happened. But this does not happened on a daily bases ( really, it shouldn't!) and what I realized a while ago while talking to my sister because she has the same "problem". We both get really in stress if someone or something messes with our plans. That can be something little, like someone at work is sick and you have to fill in, which means I can't draw, which means there goes my week-planner. Nothing big, nothing with world troubles but I HATE THAT! That can even happen to me if the internet does not work for just one morning, but if I planned to do things where I need the internet, my world is Upside Down. Do you get it? I try to take that stuff an easier way but I find that very hard. So I choose a little painting which I made in 2010. I'm hanging upside down and my sister is standing next to me. My dad took pictures of us when we were children and I made paintings out of them. What I want to say I think is this: if your world is upside down, I hope that someone is right there next to you to catch you…
You can see all the 3 paintings I made Here and for more inputs on this theme please visit the wonderful blog of Patrice!
