It was a strange day today, I didn’t do much besides some work and lots of napping. I did venture out in an attempt to find a subject that I was interested in drawing, but even with the amazingly ancient architecture around here I wasn’t drawn to anything. No pun intended.
So I settled for a simple sketch in our hotel lobby. I wanted to return to this little plant on the table because I botched it so badly with the painting from a couple days ago. The sketch in ink went well. Again I went through my simple checklist to prepare my head for some work and then got to it.
Sketch in ink with subject
I do art so often now that it’s habitual. My day isn’t complete without it and when it gets late and I haven’t done anything I become agitated. But, when I begin sketching or painting I get lost in the work quickly. I haven’t found anything in my life that is more meditative.
