42: In the Moment

with 14 Comments

“In the Moment” pen and watercolor on sketchbook Getting back to the groove of life means to start somewhere. Anywhere. Anything. This week had been full of just that. I pour myself on art. I pour myself on being a beginner again. I learn and I had fun. It doesn’t have to be a chore. It doesn’t have to be perfect. When I say pour I use time wisely. No distractions of any kind. Just me and my art. I … Read More

Living in the New Year

When we are feeling the brokenness in our lives, fragility setting in our bones and holes penetrating our hearts, may we never cease to live. I was taking a very slow walk last week and noticed these beautiful plants in our garden.

And I just had to capture them … Read More

Go Finish the Paints

Today I painted fairly quickly. I felt a bit rusty to be honest. You know the feeling of not being able to paint for a week. The thoughts–the fear they all rushed in. However, these are normal because I am painting. I tried bleeding away the first application of violet but it stays. It seems to stain. Any thoughts? This is another attempt–to paint tomatoes.. To console myself I painted this with nothing in mind. I am not sure if … Read More

As Artists we have limitations too. Surely creating art is fun. Painting is awesome. Attending art class is fulfilling. But we also need to take a break from the creative things that we do. In my case it’s a break from doing assignments and projects in my Visual Design class. I know myself deeply. And I know when to stop. I know when it’s too much to bear.
