So yea, it happened. I got sick and started my medication yesterday after a doctor’s visit. It’s from something that I got during our Wisconsin vacay but I’m on my way to getting better now. Trying my best to power through and still finish my commissions on time. Art should be calming me down, not stressing me out.🙃 It’s also nice to find more photos I took of the pieces by #OtobongNkanga from my last trip at the @mcachicago because although they carry a serious message, the overall aesthetics is so calming to my eyes. They look peaceful even if the subject matter might be about the lack of it. And that’s magic. And that’s art ladies and gentlemen. And that’s truly special.💛✨ #museumday#chicagogram

Ink on paper
5.5 x 8 inches
This work is part of a small series that I did while traveling on a train through Germany.
A few things sparked my attention looking out the window: What do we as individuals capture with our views? What stands out as important to us? What remains in our memory? Oftentimes, in our fast paced culture and world, we oftentimes overlook and miss many things.
I had fun to make choices about what to draw and to discover my surroundings a bit more through drawing.
This also made me realize that life is about making choices. What is important to us. What do we really need. It’s about taking actions, having control and making choices.
