For Interest

IMG-3727 (1)

One of the foundational threads of advice throughout all the art courses I’ve taken is to add details “for interest.” I’ve noticed that small brush strokes here and there add a lot to the piece.

Everything I’ve done based on my “interests” has borne great fruits: teaching, relationships, art, spiritual growth, and writing. When I pursued activities or work based on anything other than an authentic engagement, it never worked out.

“Interest,” it turns out, is essential to true joy.

  1. Interest … God is in the details … interest … because your blog contains many references to plants your method reminds me of fractals … details repeating themselves … this, in turn, reminds me of a method for developing a story that I stumbled on, The Snowflake method.
    I believe that if I were to compile you blogs and look at them as a whole and then look into them in detail, I would detect patterns similar to fractals, similar to pattens found in nature.
    I admire your work.
    Peace
