This applies more to my son that it does to me, Storm walks his dog 'Daisy every day - and long walks - sometimes 2! He takes her around town or to the forest and they alwasy both come home in a better mood than when they left! lol Storm is usually in a good mood anyhow- it takes a lot to get him Off his path. Thank God. His roots are strong as well as his mind. He has his favorite girl by his side, she doesn't plays mind games - or ask for fancy gifts.. lol No wonder Dogs are mans best friend. Mine too.
Me? I should have drawn (as Joshua said...):
And onto my drawing desk I go, to lose my mind and find my soul!
All these painting are small.. 5 inches in diameter I guess. They take me roughly still approximatly 2 hours, but mostly it is simply to force myself to warm UP. When I have 'artist block'- I pick a quote & draw it, and If I'm really stuck - I say to myself - the first thing you see on PIN you draw & I DO. No mental blocks, not allowed. I am an artist! I dont have mental blocks.. I refuse.
& IT works!!! Storm will be amazed, he will come in my office- I'll have no idea what Im drawing and 15 minutes later he sees 'it' appear and I make myself finish! These tiny little treasures are more than a great way to start- or finish my day- they help me THINK, sort and DREAM. Currently a painting sits in the other room waiting for me to finsih it, taking the bulk of my time - I love every second. A special painting for a friend. It has a mind of its own as well... I was painting and I looked up and my figure has turned into the sun! Not intentional - my heart took over I guess. FORCE yourself.
Let the love flow.
Today, working on political cartoon regarding (what else) cannabis and alcohol in Canada.
Tomorow I'll post a little seasonal JOY. Ho Ho - just because I'm not decorating it does not mean I'm not drawing about the holiday! It's so much fun- I won't be able to contain myself. Santa Bud, Reindeer, elves! Tis the Season!!
So - Where do you do to find your soul?
Have Faith! 19
