Sunday whispers – Do you have a guardian?

One of my goals for this year is to make more art, „play“ more with my art materials, learn new techniques. So I signed up for Lifebook 2014. The first exercise was to draw your own guardian for the year. I had already drawn my „reminder“ for my word for 2014 and I knew I wanted my guardian to look similar. But I wanted her to look less scared. After all, she was supposed to protect me from my own inner critic. And that’s a tough job, you know. ;-) So this is her.

Guardian - mixed media - by Ursula Markgraf

I do love how she turned out. She is not perfect of course. But nothing ever is. :-) Or as Danielle LaPorte says:

“Every masterpiece that’s ever been done – it could have been better”

Like it? Tweet it!

And everytime I look at her I do feel „stronger“. Odd, right?!

Do you have a picture or „thing“ that reminds you of your own power?

Sunday whispers is a little series. My goal is to post something shortish but inspiring for you each Sunday – hopefully together with some art – so that you have a little incentive to slow down, reflect and think. I know how crazy weeks can be, but after all, it is Sunday. :-) Enjoy and let me know what you think. You can find the other Sunday whisper posts HERE.
