slow and steady…

28 Apr

…wins the race, right? This saying would especially make sense if the race was without a definitive finish line… 


I have been {very} slowly working away at a large-scale personal piece for several months now. I seem to only find minutes, not hours, to add to it, but I am happy with what has emerged on the page.  


It has been a welcome treat to have a drawing to go to when I find a bit of free time. I think with a couple more committed studio sessions, it will be complete. If I can keep up this tortoise type pace, then this is hopefully the start of a new series. Imagine what will happen if I channel my inner hare?

    How beautiful! :) It is one of my goals for this summer/fall to create a piece of watercolour art that I would be proud to hang on my wall. I used to be much more visually creative, but it seems like language— don’t use it, and it fades away.
