To me, spring means blossom and colours and light evenings and energy. Spring energy. More energy to move and more energy to create.
My morning doodles this week were different to previous weeks. Instead of drawing in black ink first and adding colour later, I dipped into the colours straight away.
Abstract patterns poured out of me. I can't explain them. I made a mark where I felt one should be, until I felt like I didn't need to make any more.
I drew around my hand. I haven't done that in a long time. A lot of tasks in The Artist's Way encourage me to get in touch with my inner artist, and my inner artist is a child. Apparently.
So I don't mind that this looks like a child drew it. Because a child did draw it.
