Draw More…

Posted on February 2, 2015

DRAW MORE. Drawing is the most important aspect in painting. As I draw more, I see reason to paint. To just PAINT is to ignore the foundation in which rests the weight of any color. The test is to draw anything, any effect. It does not have to be important, or a message, or a composed scene with trees. Drawing is the net that stops me from plummeting each time I paint. All the hours spent noodling added up to something – not just a label ‘ Painter’. Sometimes I tell people I am a painter, and I want to mean I paint houses, trim, siding. It seems more noble than self absorption. Philosophy is my mainstay, and I know I started to paint/draw based on theologies regarding finding truth without organized religion. I do believe it is a way.
