Draw every day ~ February 1st





















So the project I mentioned that I'm doing for February is drawing every day.  It grew out of my experience of writing stones and a desire to draw more.  The idea is to draw something ordinary that I see each day.  It is not about making beautiful or fancy creations.  I want to keep the drawings simple, to use minimal colour and to focus on what I see.  Because that process of seeing is meditative in the way that writing stones is and has been meditative, eye-opening, a way of being present and awake to the world. 

I will be using ink so that I can't rub out any mistakes.  Because the mistakes are part of the process, and the drawing will be a record of how I saw in that moment.
