Everyday in the studio surprises. After the listless drawings I made two days ago (posted here yesterday), I did not know what to expect. Yesterday's studio session began with a relatively introspective, typical, predictable, slowly-made drawing. Drawing number was a quick reaction to the slowness of the first. I had come out fighting. That second drawing fiercely fell out of me. Number three drawing appeared in a manner in-between the process of the previous two. I show the three drawings in order of my current opinion of their quality and importance, best to worst (not in order of their creation).
Looking more broadly at the use of my time, I realize that I cannot defeat the cycle. I go through energetic, extremely creative days, followed by a couple days of dullness, then I return again, fully awake and alive with reasons to create anew. Yesterday was the transition day in the cycle. I believe I am back to full mindfulness today. I fully intend to return to the painting.
