I traveled to Nashville this morning to draw during Open Studio at Warehouse 521. I love this place but I don't care for the drive. A hour and a half on the road with lots of traffic. When I start drawing, I'm at peace. This model was so still and was always in pose after breaks. She is really good. The other artists skill levels are amazing, they challenge me to work harder to get better. When I start drawing I'm in my own world, I zone out. I only see the model and I hear nothing (no one talks, they are drawing or painting). When they call time for a break, it's as if I wake from a dream. I am in total harmony with myself.. When I paint, I don't feel this way, I'm stressed.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
