Had a bit of an epiphany recently that I’ve been way too harsh on myself and others, and not going out for walks enough. My sketchbook is crawling right now, so I’ll be posting more sketches soon.
Some finished work on the way too, but, of course, life has a way of slowing these down. What’s worked best is allowing finished compositions to snowball, and just really commit to working on them but in a dispersed way. The energy that would be pouring into an array of diverse sketches is instead funneled into one project.
The work accrues and gains polish, like a pearl in the mouth of a clam. Ugh, thank you.
