Things I like to draw

DSCN0356 Drawing things I like to draw tree bark

Drawing demands attention. I like to draw because it teaches me how to see. I know I’ve said that before, but I can’t emphasize enough how important that is to me.

I want art to be, not about making pretty things, but about vision. How to see, actively, creatively. I look for what most people wouldn’t see, and if they did, see without attention. Seeing–without opening the heart to wonder, without catching what we see in the webs of memory.  Here are some of the things I like to draw. (I encourage you to click and zoom in on these for detail.)
