In honour of hosting Rainbow Day on Daisy Yellow's "Building a Rainbow" project, I've decided to not only explore rainbows, but also the "just out of reach-ed-ness" theory of the pot of gold.
Have you ever tried chasing a rainbow to find the pot of gold?
I have found that by the time I find what appears to be the end of the rainbow, it has relocated to a few more blocks away. Or the magical moment has gone and rainbow has disappeared altogether. No matter how fast I drive and how carefully I track a rainbow, I have NEVER found the end of the rainbow.
Determined to find my own "pot of gold," I've been pondering what a pot of gold really is:
joy, excitement, wealth, surprise, magic
The most exciting realisation of all is that I have all of these things. I live in a lovely house with an completely adorable man and a cute-as-can-be kitten. I have a secure job that pays me a moderate wage. I keep myself excited by creating art every day with my sewing machine, in my art journal, or by designing new jewelry creations. And as for surprise, my romantic love keeps me on my toes with flowers for no reason, special messages and notes throughout the day, and new adventures for us to embark upon. I live the pot of gold.
|This rainbow was fun; I cut squares of colour out of magazines and then arranged them into a cascading rainbow. The background was made using pencil crayons with a mossy green wash over top. Nice!|
