May brought with it a bit of sunshine, lots of rain and an explosion of flowers !
I have been looking back across my sketchbooks and thinking about the explorations in color, form, an line I have done along with some of my drawing from life. I am realizing how much light specifically sunshine plays such a big role in my energy to create. This may sound a bit strange but I realize I spend way too much time inside where its dark, cold and stationary. I need to push myself out the door and see and experience more life has to offer. I keep driving myself to fill every moment with the to-dos of life and I keep over extending myself. I am reminded again that my sketchbook is permission to slow down and just be. I want to spend some time just sitting today and sketchbooking the world around me.
For May I choose the theme Jump because I want to take a leap into life more often. I want to take more chances and try more things get outside and bike with my sketchbook. I kind of feel like I am coming back to life after this loooooong winter and the flowers and sunshine is helping me bloom a bit. Now if we could tone down the rain a bit at would be fab!
Remember to let yourself explore and challenge yourself to not only create every day but experiment with your supplies and your process. Part of being an artist is just making art not everything has to be "beautiful", "perfect" or "art" the process is justas important if not more important than the product!
