Growth 6, abstract art by Amy Crook

Growth 6, 5″x7″ pen & ink on bristol

This delightfully awkward little drawing hearkens back to the heart of my Growth series, leaving out the color entirely and just exploring the idea of sending small bits of yourself both inward and outward.

The line work evokes Shel Silverstein, with a dash of The Little Prince in the volcano-ish eruptions on the surface of the wibbly-wobbly world.

There’s something charming about the exploration of liminal space here, with the clusters expending their energies both inward and outward from the almost-not-there line that defines the boundary.

Do you need a reminder to prioritize Growth in your life?

Above, you can see an extreme close-up on the tiny clusters riding that liminal boundary. Below, you can see the piece in its frame, delicately charming in its hand-drawn-ness.*
