thankfully i've escaped the funk...
due in no small part to these wonderful books :)
a pattern is emerging, which is strangely new to me...
i get stuck, feeling i can't get out; i read an art book (at the moment art theory rather than practice), and i'm inspired to draw something - anything!
if this is an ungoing phenomenon - which is so hope it is - i can only be good :)
on not being able to paint is what got me out of this latest corner - bless you, marion milner, wherever your spirit may be! and i just started the kandinsky book (i love the cover!) this morning and i had to draw...
i'm realizing i need to think long and deeply about a number of things:
why do i draw?
what does it mean to me?
do i want to draw naturalistically or expressionistically? does it matter?
am i drawing just for me or to communicate something?
does the medium matter? i.e. charcoal, pastel, biro
i think these questions, and hopefully answers, belong more in my OCA learning log, so as i work through them, i may leave this blog for a while... but you're more than welcome to drop by Mark out the Sensual Life :)
