i was told today
working on a piece of art can teach you things about life you would never elsewhere find. when drawing, you come across something great you want to hold on to and are proud of. you start to work around this one particular thing. what’s wrong with that is everything else starts to become distorted because of how focused you are on keeping this one particular thing in frame. let it go. erase it, and with time it will naturally reappear and redefine itself. we are naturally programmed to cling onto the things we like and things that make us happy so we engulf ourselves in them. the only way to live in the now and to create in the now is to let go of the memories and what was good in the past, and to recreate over and over again.

thank you andré martel.
