spring in process

More contemplative work.  The “Spring” tapestry is progressing as spring awakens here in the desert.


Notes to Self

March 19, 2010


Pages from my sketchbooks.  I draw during meetings at work, in waiting rooms, on airplanes, in parks waiting for soccer to be over.  I also draw when I can’t sleep, or am ill or ill-at-ease.  I know this is what settles and balances me.


At these times, I am able to draw with an uncritical mind.  Drawing becomes a process of reflection and mindfulness.  I am taking notes on something, but not aware at that time what that might be. Activity and talk and noise is usually all around me, but somehow through this process, the mind is free.


The material can later become a springboard for other works on paper, or in fibers, jewelry, whatever they are meant to grow into.
