Day 25- Dare to be powerful 

When I read this prompt from Lisa Sonora- an image popped into my head of one of my mandalas and a tornado 

“When I dare to be powerful—to use my strength in service of my vision—then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”

— Audre Lorde

I really enjoy doodling and I use it as a stress reliever, we watch crime dramas on the TV that used to make me really tense – if I doodle I seem to be able to distance my self and enjoy watching – I seem to be able to do it even with subtitles.

I sometimes think what am I going to do with this now, I send them out as happy mail but really I have too many. So I stuck this one in my journal 

The pages were already orange – I smear left over paint in my journal so that I don’t waste paint 

I wanted my power to come from the centre of the doodle – I researched some tornado photos and realised that they don’t seem to touch the ground visually. I sketched in a shape and added doodle lines as if the tornado was affecting the page 

I finger painted white acrylic to start adding the power and energy of the storm 

I added more finger painting in orange and added thin black line definition onto the tornado 

I thought it was finished so I added my kidnappers text – but the tornado didn’t pop enough. I always like to use some complimentary colour 

Teal glaze
