ON day thirteen of the 30-Day Gratitude Challenge, we’re talking about art.
I could make this really easy and tell you all about my favourite photographers and why I love photography so much. But why make things easy?
So I’m talking about my hair. I love dying my hair – in fact, I must be one of the few people who have dyed their hair every single colour of the rainbow and still not settled on one colour.
Right now I’m back to being pink, but all colours aside, the reason I’m talking about hair on an art prompt is because my hair is my art. I use it to reflect my moods, to make myself feel good, to be a little crazy sometimes and to just experiment.
Life is too short to not live it to the full, and for some people that’s travelling around the world, eating different food, being outgoing – for me, it’s how many wacky colours can I fit in my hair this week.
Art is supposed to be about self-expression and the things you want to say. I’m grateful that I can express myself through how I look and have the people around me celebrate that – even when it clashes horribly with all my clothes.
