I am getting the hang of this drawing project, and enjoying the process of deciding the subject of the day and studying it.
We have a "zen" corner of our livingroom. It consists of a makeshift altar with a beautiful gourd vessel that has twigs coming out from its opening. This gourd was a gift from our dear friend Kylie when she came to visit us couple of weeks ago from Chicago-land. It has the most beautifully smooth contours and spots reminiscent of a mixture between Chinese brush painting and a Jackson Pollock painting, if you know what I mean.
And the twigs! These twigs were foraged when we visited our friend Vicki on Anderson Island, WA, and they are just a reminder of the great hikes and lickens and uznias that are abundant there in the great Northwest. Oh, how I love them.
The gourd and the twigs create the "zen" space, and I would say it's the most peaceful space in our house.
My favorite drawing so far!
