2020. Another year, another decade... or better yet
A NEW YEAR AND AN EVEN BETTER DECADE!
YES, that's more like it.
Without getting into much personal detail, I have a feeling that a lot of us out there, myself included, have crossed over into this new decade with a similar mindset; closing big chapters and remnants of them, while taking the best of lessons and blessings as we are fully ready to embark upon a new chapter... and maybe even go on to writing a whole new "book".
The biggest lesson of all, for many of us, I believe, has been learning to value ourselves more; realising that we need to be much more mindful of where we decide to invest our time and energy, both on a professional as well as personal level. On that same note, learning that being a little more "selfish" is not something that should be condemned or something we need to apologise for.
In fact, looking after our health and making sure the energy we interact with does not drain us mentally, emotionally or physically... is a choice we are rightfully entitled to.
Every single person we encounter has a story, a past, a present and ... in most cases, a somewhat clear vision of what they wish for their future, just like we do. The level on which we choose to intertwine our lives with theirs depends solely on our will to do so; nothing more, nothing less.
ABOUT "ALEXANDRA S" ART
My latest collection, "PARADISE LOST" opened up a new chapter for me a couple of years ago. It was my first attempt at creating a collection with a story, while experimenting on techniques and selecting one that felt right, was one of the most enjoyable aspects of this chapter. Ever since, I became far more meticulous with my use of technique in every medium I would use, but also more open-minded regarding my chosen themes and the way I would approach them. As with everything we do, stepping out of my comfort zone has been delightfully challenging.
The journey continues,and given the right time and opportunity, I hope to find a physical space to share all creations... Until then, thank you for joining me and supporting me on this journey. Stay tuned for upcoming artwork!
