14" x 20"
acrylic and ink on canvas, stretched on rustic homemade frame
Life is a one-way direction - you can only go forward. There's no turning back, there never was the option to "go back", and yet sometimes we put so much energy into living in the past, or spend so much time focusing on the future that we miss out on what is happening right now. But this moment in time, the "right now" is the only time we actually get to experience.
Moving forward might sound like jumping ahead to the future, but to me, it actually means living in the now. How can we position where we're at "right now?" How can we understand if we've actually achieved anything, or if we're making "progress"? Well, technically, we can't do that unless we compare the "now" to the past, and that means there's always an opportunity to recognize personal growth. I am trying to live in the present moment, knowing that one day, this moment will be part of my past, and I will be able to look back at it fondly just like I have looked back at the rest of my life, always fondly, without regrets, because all those moments in my past led me to this moment today!
This painting is about forward motion, pressing onwards, upwards, and forward without self-doubt, without fear, without expectations, because no matter what, there's no choice but to move forwards.
