Ever heard the song 'From little things big things grow...?' Well this was certainly the case here. I found this beautiful, smooth pod..even had a little rattle in it. It evoked such beauty and really twinged a message to my heart. Nature is just amazing. I learnt so much from this tiny pod... I was drawn to it. I felt like I wanted to get to know the pod, so I drew and wrote about it in great detail in my journal. And then drew a more stylized or simplistic pattern of it. I was really taken in by it.
Not long after I painted it in a more abstract form. I'm not sure were the circles came from I went with it with out question. The message I got from this pod was a creative blessing and I realised how much I enjoy developing an idea from the beginning, not picking up a developed idea that I see else where and turn it into my own. Now I know that I'll definitely be honouring the joy in this process. Hooray!! Another piece to my creative puzzle!

Hi Nic, it's one of my favourite songs and love how little seeds of thought get to take us ...
perhaps those circles represent your imagination bubbling away *!*

I like this. My interpretation is that you've immersed the pod in water, & the circles are air bubbles, to let you know that there is life within the pod(!)
