In the Essence of the Moment

The process of sketching - the artistic response to the plant in the essential moment as a living breathing now of life, the universe, and everything - releases a kind of magic. The observed and my self as the observer have no separation. Technical ability is over shadowed and leaving a record of the experience becomes the purpose of the work. Here is the infusion of particles into the image, which hold within them the frequency of the time.

So dear reader, if you are pondering on taking up the art of sketching, what are you waiting for? Never mind the outcome, simply trust in the doing of the work and enjoy it.
