living in the present

Rabbit Study   Pencil/conte crayon on paper   10 x 13
Art, to me, is about living in the present moment, becoming timeless and enjoying the flow. In that regard, the only work of art that is important is the one you are currently working on. The problem-solving and endless choices available are a definite remedy to the confines of day-to-day living. Letting go of "things", including past works of art, is, to me, necessary to continue to grow and experience more. An evolution of sorts. "Rabbit Study" is one such work. It took me a week to do and, to me, is so very tender and fine. Most of my current work is large and gestural. I am ready to let it go.
