This hiatus has already been beneficial by allowing me to focus more on what I had accomplished instead of pushing myself to create more more more!! I am content to just draw without need for accolades or commerce. Ultimately, it took just a simple pencil and pad of sketchpaper to make me realize I don't have to fill the studio up with the latest manufactured art supplies.
The "chef" and I are packed for a trip to New Mexico. The first page of my travel journal has a sketch that I labeled: taking my heart to higher ground.
This blog will resume when we return. Yes, there will be art here again soon and I hope you don't mind waiting.
