All of my books are projects with a learning theme. The first book was about overcoming resitence. The second book was about drawing… getting comfortable with my drawing. The hardest part of being an artists is letting go of all the pre-concieved notions…that you can’t…what will they think. Or the infamous but it doesn’t look right.
You have to let go of all of that. Yup, the third book was about building my happy place. The third book was about taking my time. I wanted to test ideas and learn. I explored the notion of when it’s time to let the painting die but not the idea.
I drew the first trying to copy what I saw in an amazing photo. I drew the second (right door) after I decided to abandon all pre-concieved notions and paint. I broke the design down to it’s basic shapes and painted away.
Now I think I’ll go shop for a brown pen or marker. I am going to hand letter the words in this book. Oh I have decided I need to make a few changes to the e-books before I publish the paperbacks. It’s all good because there are no imposibilities.
