Last update before the final day tomorrow and still got tons of work to be done!
I've really enjoyed creating around the theme "Elevate"! It's given me a chance to reexamine how I look at things and began once again to take for granted.

When I thought of "elevate" it made me think about how everyone is in a different place...and how no matter where each person is they have something to contribute. As I'm painting these gestures what started as solitary expressions has grown, and I've been noticing more of the connections between them. I've had a chance to see a few of these films too and learn how these tiny slices of expression fit into those larger stories.
