Tree day.

A few days ago, I went out to Sugar Bottom near Lake Macbride to study trees. I didn't really think of it much, but I guess what I'm doing sort of feels like a little science experiment. Usually, I compose images, draw the whole, so to speak. Lately, though I have decided to study one thing at a time....to take some time with an individual thing in the spaces I observe...a flower, a plant, a tree...Drawing feels a bit like meditating lately. I like that. It is just such an great intense period of focus like no other part of my day. Someone once said that drawing is like "physical empathy." I could not put it any better.

LOVE it. I'm thinking when I get my yoga space set up we're gonna have to talk about some nature inspired art to warm it up!
