That’s funny, I’m the same. If I don’t paint for a day or two i get out of sorts. Then I get painting and get ratty as expectation far exceeds talent!
I tried to learn meditation but it never worked. Then it occurred to me that what people say they experience in meditation – floating thoughts, not being attached to them, free form creativity, mindfulness, brain quiet, etc. — is EXACTLY what I think I feel when I paint. So yeah, Harry, my experience is the same: if I don’t paint for a day or two, I get crabby.
However, I also find that when I do paint, I spend a lot of time just staring at the tings. Anyone else do that?
We get slapped around, but we have a good time!
