Life Study 1
"Life Study 1" - charcoal on toned paper, 12" x 16". Ready to frame.
"So the greatest threshold to an awakened life is the courage to say yes...yes to the challenge to live your own life, vulnerably and directly, until your being touches the sea of all beings." - MARK NEPO
You'd think the most vulnerable person in a life drawing class would be the model. But no, it is each of us artists, drawing in quickly timed blocks without time for contemplation, erasure or starting over. Just seeing and responding without time to think.
Every fiber of your being is in the moment, in flow, observing and responding, not thinking, just being. In a packed classroom, "the sea of all beings" is right there, ebbing and flowing around you, touching but not touching as you are completely alone but not alone. Finally, finally - the monkey mind (of which I am ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN I am the QUEEN) is hushed. Oh bliss! Oh perfection! Let's do that again, shall we?
