Morning with Tea

| 01 December, 2011 11:43



The immediacy of sketching is such a relief especially for a painter whose work evolves through a process of addition and elimination. Exploration and discovery do not alway extend to the artist the same  immediate gratification of the sketch.

Lately I have been poking about in sketchbooks, and finding exciting entries..many of them discovered long after the date of execution To my surprise,..inspiration is everywhere. So this morning I was inspired to take out my sketchbook, grab a marker and try to capture the light as it passed over the kitchen window sill. I dont have any idea if that image will  sleep like so many others on the shelf but it was envigorating just to do record that moment , the reality of a morning with a cup of tea before the day goes where it will.
