awash in an aimless sea
As I hurried to get this drawing to a state of resolution that satisfied me before I needed to sleep, I realized that I miss working on drawings/paintings for longer than one sitting in one day. I haven’t had that feeling often in the 10+ years of this project, so I paid attention to it.
I have done a number of side projects, mostly 3-D involving sticks and/or string, but very few more ambitious paintings. I don’t want to stop the daily drawings; they hold an important place for me. But maybe it’s time for me to consider ways of making space for daily work on bigger commitments.
That may mean time-limiting the daily drawings, or posting them as sketches, or posting work in progress. I’m not sure yet, but it seems appropriate to be thinking about this in the time of the year for planning gardens, shopping for and starting seeds.
I started posting my daily drawings for the sake of accountability. I post this intention for the same reason; time will tell if it bears fruit.
Because the snow falls on sleeping fields
everything cold and still, I dream
I dream of poppies, billowing skirts of red
dancing in summer breeze…I dream
This is a song I learned for the weekend Feast of Lights ritual performance. I don’t know who wrote it, so I’ll fill that in when I find out, but it’s charming and provided my internal soundtrack for the entire weekend.
