My daughters 19th birthday, and I swear I still wake up in the morning deciding what I want to be. I wonder if anyone ever feels grown up. I know I never have. I can pretend to be, but inside I am wondering when the hell I can leave the meeting and paint or draw or read or play. I still love crayons the best, I think if there is a heaven it will smell like a new box of crayolas.
What I have learned this month is that the less I think about the drawing the better it is. I have learned I adore charcoal and the way it moves. I like sketches as opposed to drawings-if I ay sketch it means loose and not 'finished and makes the looker fill the details in. I love that. It makes the looker part of the process, part of the work. I like to think of people adding their own, there we connect and make a whole.'
