This is an age old question. I have asked this of myself several times in my life. I do not believe that I have ever written about this aspect of my life before. I have discussed it with my friends and family a lot. I just finished a drawing that took a month to draw.
I started it on September 10, 2010 and I finished it on October 10, 2010. My Landmark Education training confirmed my belief that life is a game. I like creating games to motivate my life. I had not drawn a picture in about two years so I wanted to kick start my artistic brain with some inspiration. I said that I was going to draw a picture in one month. Now I needed something to draw.
Usually I do not have a problem coming up with ideas for a drawing. I am one of those artist that creates art with an improvisational style. I call my type of art Colored Acid Jazz. My brain has always run amuck when I stare up at clouds in the sky or get lost in a marble tile floor. My imagination makes images out of random patterns based on what is going through my mind at the moment. My artistic motto is '
I can not draw a straight line'. Even when I use a ruler to draw I eventually deviate so far away from the original goal that it even amazes me. Sometimes getting side tracked is not a good thing, but when I am drawing it is when I have the most fun and freedom.
