It just happens. I just have to show up and it keeps happening. It is not quite that simple. You have to bring all of your baggage into the studio too. The baggage is everything you know, everything you feel, all your damages on the surface of your intuition. Walking up to the canvas is one thing, the act of marking the canvas is another. Drawing is the great practice. I am enjoying this so much because of the skill embedded within me, surfacing in every mark I make. I enjoy dotting the eye and lighting it up as it turns in its artificial space. That's a skill. This little act is the reason I return again and again; because feeling the power of a skill is an enormous reminder of the extraordinary quality which is living.
