I recently finished posting the first three days for my art challenge. It included the first prompt which was the lollipop, then the Halloween special monster and lastly, more candy which was the candy canes.
You probably would know by now that I really enjoy sweet things and that’s why I incorporate them in my artwork. I always had a love for sweets, a bit too much actually. So much that it ended up really affecting my health. I started taking care of myself once I understood how much it had been affecting my body and started working out and cutting sugar out of my life.
However, even now I love sweets so much. There was a time when I was doing my masters degree that I used to get so stressed that I ended up eating 10+ chocolate bars and felt horrible afterwards. There was immediate regrets. It also really affected my skin and when my skin is in jeopardy, I feel like nothing in my life is together as well. I just lose all of my confidence. However, I am trying now to take a healthy route with all of this.
I remember this one time when I was really young and I stole some chocolate from my sisters cupboard. I was eating it behind a curtain when she caught me. It was very embarrassing. I always remember that memory and yes, we still laugh about it a lot.
So to acknowledge my love for sweet things and working through my journey of incorporating them in a balanced way in my life, I made art dedicated to candies.
I want you all to keep in mind that when I first started this art challenge I didn’t know I’ll do this for 30 days and that I will only use my imagination and nothing else. I have to say, it gave me some very interesting results but I learned a lot from my entire journey.
You also might have noticed that I have been writing poems for all three days, I took the name I gave the artwork as my inspiration to create poetry. I am not sure if its any good, however, I worked hard on them and am very proud! And to practice more writing, I have also been working on writing short stories for each of those days. I have written 1 for my day 2 prompt and am currently in the process of writing the second one. My dream is to someday inspire someone to draw more or write more! A part of me tells me that there must be many people all over the world who have the same dream, so what exactly makes me any special? I don’t know and want to find out if I can!
I don’t know if you all are liking my poetry and fictional work alongside my art but I am having a blast putting all these together!
