Paint The Mystery of the Night
Inspiration doesn’t always come easily. But you can start a habit of making time for your art each day; at least 15 minutes is recommended preferably at the same time daily. Listen to your intuition and pay attention to the time of day when you feel the most inclined to paint, draw, study, or engage in any other artful activity. Fortunately, I know my window –the morning, Each morning around 7 I am able to turn it on like a switch… to write, to draw, to dance, it does not matter how I am expressing myself. There is something magical about the sun coming up each day as the earth begins to warm itself up in the light. Or the dusk may be even better. Everything is different. Nothing matters. Everything Matters.
Another thing I love about the evening: contrast. The lighting of all that we see changes, the sky reveals stars that have been hidden from our view and our minds was we go about our daily errands, oblivious, because we can be. As the sky takes its light with the turn of the earth, we turn on our artificial lights and see things in a new way. Shadows prevail as nocturnal animals become active. Romance and danger seem impossible to avoid, and everyone seems a little more casual. It’s easy to have fun at parties at night. The day has passed and its time to celebrate life, thankful that we have enjoyed yet another day.
