Commitment takes time. And well, just commitment. It’s hard to show up for even just my second “making marks” session. And it’s hard to let go of expectations…. of where this will go, what I’ll make today, how much I’m satisfied, how “good” I think I have or have not done. But what I have done is to get it done. At least now for a second time. I tried closing my eyes. Drawing from imagination. Drawing while not looking at my hand. Making five minute drawings from photographs. All in an effort to let go and just allow the marks to emerge. And I tried a different material and medium. A china marker on Max’s newsprint pad which we have set up on an easel in our living room.
