{ life imitating art }

It has been a while since I last posted, so I had been looking forward to catching up on my last few weeks and finally giving my abandoned little blog some love. Like most people these days, my iPhone camera roll pretty much serves as a running visual diary of my life, so this is where I started to jog my memory of what I've been drawing/ painting/ loving/ eating/ wearing of late. In scrolling through, it became really apparent to me how much my mood - and then my drawings, and then everything else that follows - run so much in phases and themes. 

Are you like this, too? Do you get on a roll and become obsessed with something until it overtakes your life - and then quickly jump on to the next thing that takes your fancy? Or are you all disciplined and steadfast in your style with no digression or compromise at all? I kind of wish I was the latter, like Diane Keaton's character in 'Something's Gotta Give' with her white pebbles and polo neck sweaters.... but I fear I am still way more flighty and flippant than I realised! Sure, the above are all green and natural and flowing and calm, but my point is that next week it will be something entirely different again.

I'm sure everyone is like this to a degree and and I don't know that either is right or wrong (or even what I'd prefer to be). I also don't know that anyone else really cares (!) - but it's caught my thoughts so I figured I would share it with you. I'd love to hear if you're like this, and what are your current loves  - tell me what you think!
