Attitude

Posted Feb 2009

It's been said that the Artist is always drawing herself no matter what the subject matter of the painting is. That's true. The Artist's Personality comes through in everything she does.

Here are two line drawings that I scribbled out quickly - no predraw, no agony. I'm glad I'm the person that I am. I like these much better than the 3rd drawing - where I tried to redraw the girl in a way that I've seen students trying to control a picture to be perfect. (I've even seen some people take out rulers!) Do you see that the pictures show as much about Me as about the person I was drawing?

This is a truth that comes through in everything that we do - not just our Artwork. It's not what happens out there that determines what we're going to do. It's our own Essence that determines what we see, what we choose, and how we act.
