                                                         This ink/charcoal drawing is quite large and the time to complete was short.  At first I was feeling the figure looked incomplete  and then I saw the drawing as"movement in time"which is not about  perfection but about  truth.  # Three of seeking solice.

                                                         My favorite definition of minimalism is: living an intentional life by being authentic to yourself , mindful in your actions, and connected to seeing.   This is the second ink / charcoal drawing for this months theme with the Charleston Artist Collective .  Seeking Solace .

Heading Out.

                                          Since  Shem Creek was rather cold I left early to complete this painting  in my studio.  As usual without  reference my expression became brighter and the brush strokes more freeing.
