17 days so far in Rome.
Each day I head out of the Rome ‘studio’, I am hit head-on with more and more beauty.
I did set out from Seattle in mid-August with intention of being an artist and
discovering what that means? Huge.
I feel, one aspect of me being ‘artist’ is to draw each and everyday
and take your sketchbook with you all the time; absorb, perceive and practice.
I meet my subjects ‘head on’ and, at times, I tell myself
as I am working through the view,
‘I have met my match.’ (left brain thinking?)
However, I keep going. Going.
And going and….
I compare the works I do as a practiced musician,
perhaps an an intermediate student;
no, each day is a new start, so much more to learn and see.
Turn the page of the sketchbook and start another and begin.
