An artist studio detail
Going back to basic for me means to simplify and prune away distractions to my practice as an artist and in life. This week I purchased a yogurt maker so that I can make healthier yogurt while helping the environment by not recycling so many empty plastic yogurt containers.
I've also reestablished a routine that is very grounding to my artistic soul. That is making a 15 minute pencil drawing a day. The purpose of this exercise is to be in touch with the love of connecting heart and soul with pencil and paper, pure and simple. The exercise is like a tonic, connecting me to the present environment, removing distractions from my mind. This drawing is of a detail in my studio, showing the containers that I mix my gouache paints in, along with some books on a table.
