The world looks very different right now from just a few months ago, even just month ago.
I’m hearing from a lot of the members of my community, ART+WORK+LIVING, that they’ve lost their drive. They can’t paint.
That feeling of being knocked off kilter can come from not having your regular space to work in, your regular coworkers, the things that normally inspire you.
But now is not the time to stay stuck.
Now is the time to move your feet, and to raise your hand and paint.
Because painting matters.
Your art matters.
And people need to see it.
Zoom in on an ordinary object so that it fills your picture plane.
Change your normal point of view. Instead of working from eye level, use worm’s eye or bird’s eye level.
Use light, natural light, to make something commonplace wonderfully interesting.
What are some of the things you do to find the beauty in the ordinary?
