Art Journal #1 // Art as Meditation
I've decided to combine my resolution to meditate daily with my resolution to paint at least an hour every day. For this night owl, waking up at 5:00am is challenging, therefore I set up the easel the night before so I'd be ready. And it was far easier to wake up to sit and paint rather than getting up to exercise (my other resolution which I tried last week but decided to wait til my body was more awake).
My brain felt like it was still sleeping, so I simply pushed some color around and did some intuitive painting without focusing on any details. Afterwards I felt so refreshed and accomplished, having crossed off two things on my daily list by 7am...yay!
Looking forward to tomorrow morning's art meditation!
