I watched this little video this morning…
It was very timely. Yesterday, I took the afternoon to nourish myself. I attended a session at the Esker Foundation, a studio in drawing. I cherished the time…time to make observations, be totally present and to translate what I was observing into marks. Thank you, Doug Williamson, for sharing your knowledge.
Life has pounded my family and friends lately and as a way of stepping through the pain of watching their struggles, as I’ve done throughout my life, I made art. By creating music or dancing or making marks, a person can transcend difficulties. This is what I find. We all have ways of integrating suffering until it begins to melt away. Rather than being victims to our narratives, we can push on through, to become supportive to others and to not only survive, but thrive and create.
Creativity is a journey…a process…a life-saver.
My drawing begins…
A bit of feedback, very much appreciated. And then…coloured media, tonal considerations and coloured grounds discussed.
It was an intense…but enjoyable afternoon!
