Stillman & Birn sent me a stack of 4 x 6 inch paper samples. I finally had a chance to open a pack a few days ago and, after thinking about various projects I might make with some of them, sat down and just decided to draw a bird. As it turns out, a happy juvenile!

Freedom! Joy!

    So joyful; great mood! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also appreciated the emailed Stroke and Flow blog re forgiveness. Letting go of stuff that keeps us down or mired in a bad place is a healthy idea. It’s interesting that you’re quoting from Marcus Aurelius. I’m inclined to pick up his book of Meditations for myself; heaven knows I could use the insights.

    I’m using this daily blog to evolve into a more regular art practice of my own. It’s nonsense when I do all kinds of busy work prepping to do art or worrying about the outcome or criticism without actually making anything. An endless loop like a cat chasing its tail? Your daily practice is helpful, Thank You. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Free Bird. I always try to remember we are humans, and that is just what humans do. Just do the best one can do, and if that doesn’t suit you, just go to bed and do better tomorrow.
