Diversity & Attitude: 30 Days of Abundance, Day 15
I am posting a video I made during the time that I was designing and painting little wood panels as templates for my card deck project. It took a little over one year for me to paint and write the content for my 62 piece card deck that I named Magical Mind-shifts… Ignite Your Inner Power and Transform Your Life. I remember that I was so excited when I drew and painted a little white kitty cat who became a Mermaid Cat. Now, who would think this was a work of creativity. When I showed it to a friend she squinted her eyes and said, “This is weird, a cat dressed as Mermaid?” Even after hearing that remark, I still kept the cat in my card deck … I saw the cat as a perfect metaphor for the word DIVERSITY. (At the final stage of finishing my card deck project, I changed the word on this card to ATTITUDE. To me, DIVERSITY and ATTITUDE go hand-in-hand when people discriminate against others who are different than what they consider normal. Watch this video and you will find out why I’m so attached to what this Cat Mermaid stands for.
How do you embrace diversity in your life?
What is the value that diverse groups of people bring to your circle?
What can you learn from people who look, act, and think differently than you?
How can we break down the cultural barriers that separate people?
Another Brown Paper Bag Art
A lot of you liked the gift boxes I made from paper grocery bags. Here is a “Save the Earth” cat I painted on a paper I cut from a grocery bag. I love painting and making things out of brown paper bags. They are very supple and easy to work with. I painted the bag with white gesso and used TomBow Markers to draw and color the cat.
