"still life I", watercolor... and discovery!
1st of february 2013,
A watercolor I did yesterday...
I read somewhere, words of a girl who draws... She (we) when finished a drawing; "she needs to get sober", which can take some time, or less time. That's when you take a distance and say to yourself, well this is not as it should, instead of being happy with what you do. Then we also say; "I've made some progress, I see it now!". She also says that, if it happens shortly after, it makes her mad.
For this one I got sober overnight!! But instead of feeling mad for this, I feel very happy!!
I see a potential I should work on. Something that has been growing in my mind since a while, is coming out. (I guess this might be my own impression, maybe difficult to detect by others)
Now I'll have to stay focused and persevere (!!). This might be "one stone", the first, of something.
I want to get the essence of "things" and manage to express it in the simplest of ways... Without useless "artifices" or "fancy effects".
Finally I got something to work on!
It has been a while, since I didn't feel this kind of motivation. I just hope I can hang on to it!
