Insignia 006

I actually found an extra hour or so this morning and was able to sit down and do this drawing. My day was filling up fast so I'm glad I was able to devote some time to drawing.

Anything that we engage with becomes engaging. This is what I am learning from great teachers. Attention to an object, a person, a topic, or making a piece of artwork can result in delight. Flow is when the mind is fully engaged in something and skills are well matched to the task at hand - time and cares melt away as we become absorbed in what we are doing. There is a feeling of pleasure, satisfaction, and accomplishment that usually results. I want more of that!

Hi Jeff, I love the contrasts on this. Nicely done I think. What were you thinking about the placing of the drawing on the paper, why in the corner?
Psychologically it is interesting.

That's it!! Psychologically and artistically interesting. And I intend to use these drawings in more developed mixed media collage pieces, much like the ones that were framed in my gallery show. So I left room at the top because other elements can go there.
