Day 29 (Laura gable)

Here's a simple sketch of my Dad's old boots for the 29th day of this lovely month (hope to make it into a painting soon). My last post sounded derogatory...like the creative process was drudgery. I'd like to set the record straight and say that's not the case. It's been a very fun and experimental month. At times the art process can seem like a task, but once I settle down and settle in, I'm quickly overcome and absorbed. Aren't we all?? I'm finding it's good to keep the pen moving even if I don't know what I want to "say" artistically that day. It keeps my hand limber... sort of like yoga for the hand (smile).

Love it! Love it! Love it! Simple and oh so telling! This art-a-day practice puts me into my meditation hours. I feel so much better at the end of a session!

Wonderful, Jan, that you are discovering the joy of creating art again... no expectations, just pure joy (maybe even rapture?). It's as though we are becoming again who we were when we were little children and the world was one giant exploration of joy.
