We delight in the unexpected. Someone stops by that we havent seen in years, we get a surprise at work. We crave the unexpected. It makes life feel present and wonderful. Working in the studio for hours and hours can be taxing so every so often I will do something just fun for myself. This painting was going to just get painted over but I decided to have some fun first. I painted the zebras just for me and no one else. The funny thing is they look so great I am going to not paint over the painting now and just call it done. It reminds me of surprises and how we can make them happen even in our work. Things don’t have to be so serious that you can’t just have fun and relax. I hope you put zebras into your life somewhere today. They are the most delightful animal.
