Listening to the trees – I smell them –It’s the best smell and I don’t know why I’ve never been here before – the tree above me even spoke to me – it dropped a leaf on my blanket as if to say hello. Ok I’ll come back. No matter what the limitation – we show what we are within it and what we do though bound by it. There is always something to be found even in the tiniest, tightest little dark corner – in fact it may illuminate our true nature!
The above image is an excerpt from one of my sketchbooks. Working in North Hollywood I would take my lunch breaks at a small park nearby. I needed to feel grass and be in nature for at least a small time each day. This is when I started to paint during my lunch breaks and it grew to be a pretty significant way to grow in my art while I had very little time because of my full-time day job. It also helped my soul and my heart to grow a little bit lighter.
