(I see changes I may make --
so this may be a work in progress.)
One sign that my long artistic depression (I don't mean severe --
just present) is starting to disappear is that I'm feeling compelled
to draw again. Drawing is such a treat for me. And drawing faces is
exciting, because as you draw a person emerges. It's the same
with portrait painting.
When that person starts to look like someone you know,
or someone you've imagined, it is such a pleasure. There the
person is -- looking at you -- asking you, "what's next? Will
you continue with me, or are you moving on to a new sketch?"
If art starts talking to you, and you can't wait to make
some, you are back in the game, and moving forward. Thank
you to everyone who comments here, and on IG. I feel like
I am moving into the light.
Have a loving your life day.
