We will walk this one through this week. It was a journey of which I cannot share everything because of the energy behind the foundation, the letting go of what I wanted compared to the spirit of the paint. It is a worthy journey not yet ended as I begin with this sketch for Sunday. I was listening to an old recorded interview with Leslie Saeta, Dreama Tolle Perry and Dan McCaw. Listening to Dan McCaw's outlook on art and himself as an artist, I felt so drawn to his comparisons.  I have always shared the need to allow the spirit of each painting to surface and not control it.  Dan shares the thought that art comes from deep within each of us.  What is in must come out. It is not a matter of what you draw or plan to paint, the true spirit lies within you the entire time.  

One of the last things he covered was on reinventing yourself.  I don't know that I consider it that exactly, but more of rediscovering the spirit inside of you. As the years past and you paint, you are definitely in a repetitive situation trying over and over again to create that perfect piece that others will love and applaud you for. Meanwhile you are missing out on discovery and play. That is so well exemplified by Robert Burridge and his workshops. I love the freedom of his work, his teaching and his direction for you to let go and discover. 

Meanwhile, what will you do with yourself? Are you painting the same things over and over again? Are you using the same approach over and over again?  You cannot grow that way.

Terry said he feels that way about this home and growing.  The journey not yet ended because we are constantly tweaking and fine tuning. Gutters were put on yesterday. He wants to install rain barrels to the guttering but first it has to rain here.
