Tonight I was really out of sorts, I had no idea what to paint and I really didn’t have a lot of energy to do art. So with no direction, goal or idea I was adrift in my thoughts while I setup a random still life and painted it.
The act of doing art, the focus on translating my surrounding into a two dimensional image is much like meditation. So even on day like today, where I don’t have much purpose or direction, the act itself is more than enough.
When you’re adrift on the sea of life, up’s and down’s are inevitable, just relax and let the current take you.
