Daily Practice

Now that I’ve finished drawing all 642 Things to Draw and I’ve finished the illustrations for my third book (Chloe the Cling Fish and her Clutter), I’m back to Creativebug.com. This apple is the first day of “Everyday Sketching: 31 Still Life Prompts.” I publish on this blog only to hold myself accountable to be creative every single day (outside of my job as a 5/6th grade English and social studies teacher).

I’ll never be a Klee, Rembrandt or any other famous artist. I just want to express myself to the best of my ability. And I’m having so much fun doing it!

Peace in Unlikely Places

“Instead of seeking liberation in some future moment, realize that the “limitations” you are experiencing right now are openings into presence…into space. When you surrender to that, you are rooted into the formless and deep peace.

Nothing in the world of form matters that much.”

Eckhart Tolle
