These three drawings look very different from anything I have done before. During their making I allowed myself to feel fully, to feel deeply, to be true to my integral, internal self. These are me struggling to decompose my knowledge. These are me struggling to be in the center of my lonely, unique intuition. I am making an effort to follow my center, step by unique step. My discipline is in each step; each step is as internal reaction to the success or failure of the last step. I am working hard to move without preconception, or bias. This is practice in being mindful. It is arduous work to stay centered in the here and now! These drawings represent a new beginning. I have begun stripping away preconceptions, bias, education, and Art History; all of my learned knowledge and learned behavior pollutes my mind; regurgitating past experience distracts from presence and personal reality. Practicing mindfulness means I am falling into my center; a center that only I possess in the here and in the now.
