I didn’t start drawing
until 4 years ago
when I was pregnant
I was big, hot and ready to bust when I picked up a drawing pencil and drew this.
I don’t know what makes someone “able”to draw.
I thought I “couldn’t”. I don’t think I ever wanted to until then. I can’t stop now.
I have to in order to find my center.
It doesn’t matter.
One stroke after another, it all adds up to a picture eventually.
I find this comforting.
I know no matter how hectic it gets, I will “eventually” finish.
I find that a break in (any given project) is actually a helping hand.
If I had any advice to give it would be…..
not only you,
Breathing takes time and practice.
I have spent well over 16 years practicing the technique
and allowing my self to believe that it is worth the effort and worth the time.
Breath is the foundation to life and to any piece of “art”.
It’s the building block to humanity.
Think about it, without it, there is nothing.
Art has to be something alive.
If it is not, how will it ever LIVE?
Marilyn Monroe LIVES.
Pollack Jackson LIVES.
I could go on and on.
(Their ART LIVES today.)
ART is a human expression beyond the limits of any human being.
It is something that has been ALIVE since the dawn of our time.
SELF – EXPRESSION.
So to answer my question–WHY ART?
I HAVE TO.
I have to BREATHE
I have to Express my experience being human
and what I see around me.
Because I want to LIVE. I want to BE and FEEL
