tree sketch.01

 |  January 2, 2006

Here is my first sketch of the year. I decided that I’m going to try to sketch, doodle, paint, collage a tree every day for a year. Or at least until however long I last. I thought it would be interesting to see what would happen after drawing the same subject everyday. I may end up drawing elements of a tree- a leaf, a twig, an an acorn…or maybe I’ll get bored and just do a bird! The tree though has always been my personal symbol. A wintery tree- no leaves.

The most important thing to me about this exercise is to have the creative intention.

Underneath this sketch I wrote:
over our striving, our rooms, our houses; the beautiful ritual of the rain falling against the window, the voice of the wind, makes us remember a journey older than thought, deeper than death, a triumph, the secret ascension of love. The tasting of those things in our days and nights is the partaking of the sacrament of existence. ~Cecil Collins
