One of the resolutions I made at the start of this year, was to take greater pleasure from the small things in life and to take things more slowly. I don't normally make resolutions and this one wasn't really a conscious one, but rather the result of often getting to the end of the year to discover I am extremely burnt out, tired and in need of some slow time. Drawing, art, printing and photography is certainly a big part of this plan. Nothing calms me down at the end of an action packed work day like a walk through my neighborhood and then some hours in the studio working in my notebook, or printing on Senor Enjay.
With the year already half gone - and with the decision taken to not spend money on travel this year (home repairs take greater priority alas). I have been trying to look at my every day world with a little bit more of an adventurous lens. This applies to art as well as to opportunities, photographs and it really does make you appreciate all the tiny little vignettes that you might miss otherwise. Below are the results of 5 months of a more conscious existence and observing my world.
p.s you might notice I am still madly in love with colour!
