Tonight I was calm, relaxed and ready to take my time on a painting. I wish my mind was in this state for every piece of artwork that I carried out. I was able to traverse this complex still life with ease, as if I was one tenth my size and crawling over every inch of the objects before me. I looked, I recognized, I processed, then I executed with ease hundreds of times almost as if it were more meditation than painting. I would never make a bad painting if I could get my head here each night.
