Art Lights You Up

144.-A-Quiet-Thought-12x12

After spending the last couple of weeks evaluating progress made in 2015. It’s time to start again. Northern California is getting much needed rain. The cool rainy days are in contrast to the sun that mostly appears throughout the year in this area. After a little time off, getting the paint brushes out can be a little confronting. It’s amazing how quickly I have forgotten how to paint. I’m getting older, but I don’t think dementia is setting in? So what do I do? Baby steps. Put primer on a panel, organize the studio, do some drawings, etc. Just move. After a little while the creative wheels begin to churn. Then, if I am present and don’t rush it. I remember. It’s about discovering something new, something I’ve not seen that leaves me inspired. This is what lights me up. The act of creation. I’m interested in what lights you up? Leave a comment below.

To see my recent work in person, you can visit Terra Firma Gallery in Sonoma, CA, and The Passdoor Gallery in Sebastopol, CA.

For those of you who want to get inspired by starting out the new year being bold and creative, come play and explore in one of my studio workshops.
