New Work Goes Slowly
"Bad drawing! Bad drawing!"
Now that we are back in Delaware I’ve begun a new over sized (32” by 40”) drawing based on photographs I’ve been taking in the saltwater marshes in the area. It is progressing slowly because I’m not used to working with grass and foliage. I haven’t managed to reach that state of automatic flow while working that often happens for me with the seascapes. Instead I’m stressed while working. I know stress is good and can lead to growth, but not when it's constant.
Sometimes I think that drawing and painting is a bad habit.
Why do friends think that doing art is a constant vacation?
