|Drawing: My Bestest Morning Model|
(waterproof ink pen, rubber stamp ink pads, pigment ink pads)No art lesson last week, which forced me back on myself to draw a bit more on my own this past week. Looking at what I did I was kind of shocked! Drawing in bed is one of my favorite things to do in the morning. Most weekday mornings, I get up and fix coffee for my husband and I and bring it back to bed. My husband reads manuscripts for his publishing job, our cats sometime join us, and lately I use the time to either read art books, journal, or draw. This past week I continued to read Journal Spilling by Diana Trout who uses spilling writing as a writing exercise. Diana credits Julia Cameron who uses this technique to stimulate creative writing in her book The Artist's Way (which I picked up way long ago and never read). Basically you write anything that comes up. Could be one word, could be a slew of sentences and if you get stuck or pause keep writing the same thing until something different comes into your brain.

And as a postscript I drew two journal pages in the past week: one and two.
