I'm a lover of simple designs without extra, unneeded flourishes. But I don't do simple. Does that make sense at all? I mean, whenever I do something, be it a picture or a drawing or whatever, there is some background, some meaning, some story to it. Even if I only keep that in my head, it still has something behind it. Maybe others don't know what the meaning is, but I do. Simple...it eludes e. I can make very simple designs, but it is not simple in essence. All of these musings are brought up because of a conversation on Flickr. See? Even conversations go beyond what is said! I'm hopeless, really, when it comes to this. I'm forever thinking, so maybe that has something to do with it? Maybe I'm trying to come up with something interesting when I personally am a rather run of the mill, normal, possibly boring person? I honestly have no idea.
As i said, I love simple looks. Who needs rhinestones and glitter (though I do love glitter) when just the swirls of the lines are enough? One of my wishes is to get a tattoo at some or another point, and that will be simple as well. In looks only. It'll have some meaning and not just be 'because I can'. Simple looks, simple gestures, simple...anything can have such a deep meaning, the simplicity is blown away once that is revealed. I am going to try and see if I can take a simple picture, or do a simple drawing, or...something, but I' not sure I'll be able. Now, I'm not saying that is a bad thing, but I do not think it possible for me. I might be wrong, and it'll be interesting to see if I am or not, but....I don't know. I'm very bad at doing things 'just because', and, perhaps, that could be seen as a bad thing in some people's eyes, but it can't be that bad. I mean, this is also why I always say what I mean, so it ca't be thought I mean something else or have some meaning underlying it. I don't want people to become upset because they misconstrue my words; if they're going to be upset, I'd rather it be because of my actual meaning. So I say what I mean, and mean what I say...even if my wording is off. It's how I am: a lover of simple surfaces, but knowing there is so much more beneath the surface.
