It is Monday and we know you love starting the week out with a fun challenge! Here in the south, it is getting more and more spring-like every day.
For those of you living in a different climate, I thought we would have a fun challenge that usually comes with nice, sunny weather. I don’t think you could classify me as an adrenaline junky, so this is clearly not something I could ever do.
I think it is probably a sport that fills one with adrenaline, but is not for the faint of heart. Is that enough suspense? Are you ready for this week’s art challenge?
Here is what I want to see. I want to see art depicting an adrenaline rush.
Maybe that is skydiving or parachuting. It could be riding in a hot air balloon or ziplining.
Whatever gives you an adrenaline rush, that is what we are hoping to see in your art. Another sport that makes me think of adrenaline is racing: motocross, biking, or Formula 1, each proving its own unique form of adrenaline.
Max Verstappen said, “the smell of fuel, driving on the limit on the edge of sliding, it just gives you a lot of adrenaline.” That is exactly what I am looking for.
To me, this challenge is asking for art that gets your blood pumping. One that increases your heart-rate and really makes you take notice.
Some art makes us happy. Some art hits us in the feels.
This week’s art? This week’s art gives us an adrenaline rush in some way, shape or form.
I don’t think my imagination is creative enough to even pretend to know how I would feel. But, through the art by Dhruvil, I have been provided a little glimpse.
Former WNBA player, turned coach, Becky Hammon said, “I’m up for challenges. I’m up for being outside the box, making tough decisions and challenges…And I’m a little bit of an adrenaline junkie.”
That quote, in my opinion, is what I feel when looking at this piece by Dhruvil.
As we have had a particularly tough week with the Austin shooting, the FedEx shooting, the unacceptable death of Daunte Wright and the Chauvin trial, we could use a welcome distraction of anything that brings feel-good, happy emotions.
So, as you submit art, make it adrenaline-filled, happy-go-lucky feelings. Help take our minds off the mess around us.
Snoop Dogg said it best when he said, “that’s why I’m so successful because peace is my main thing, it’s not about money. It’s about making sure everybody is having a good time and loving and living and enjoying life.”
He encapsulates this challenge better than I ever could. What Snoop said is exactly what I am looking for in this challenge.
I want to see you enjoying your adrenaline-filled life!
