See. Be. Draw. - What's in a name?Today, I find that See. Be. Draw. represents even more to me.
See - In drawing from life, it's all about the eye-hand coordination. If the link between the eye and the hand were perfectly synchronized, we would never need to look at our drawing, only at the subject matter.
Be - We spend much time doing, less so just being. I find that when I draw, I am here, present, instead of spending time in the past or the future.
Draw - That's right! How about right now?
Drawing from life and seeing, really seeing what is in front of me. As details are revealed, beauty is everywhere. Drawing from within, using my inner sight to envision what I feel.
From stillness creation is born. Being, body and mind relaxing, expanding, filing away the old, making space for the new and unexpected connections and associations.
Drawing, painting, writing, creating. It is all one.
Happy Anniversary, See. Be. Draw.!
