Walking the Dog
I am back from the plein air convention and inspired to paint! I saw a number of fantastic demos and talks, hung with some old friends, and met some new ones. I also bought a few new products to try out (more on that later).
One of the talks was by a great artist named Brian Mark Taylor, about learning. He said "performing is not practicing," which really hit a nerve with me. Brian spends two hours a day mindfully practicing one thing or another, spending about a month or two on each thing. So I compiled a list of things I'D like to practice, and promised myself I would spend time each day working on that. So far so good.
