I am really enjoying my participation in the 101 days of Art challenge. Some nights…most actually, it’s been hard to get started. After a full day of teaching and dealing with the increasing union situation I think that sitting down to make some art has been a little therapeutic.
Making art is every much about being present in what is happening at this very minute. I can’t worry about anything else but what is in front of me and what is happening on the paper. Yesterday’s mistakes, today’s issues and tomorrow’s worries are not part of the space of what is happening at this very minute. Those “things” are still there, of course, but all I can affect is the paper, my brush and the flow of that moment.
