This morning walking with Sydney in the park, I saw a beautiful, slightly damp eucalyptus tree with red bark. This picture is inspired by it, though not done from observation. Like a few weeks ago when I posted photos of Tree Corsets, sometimes I just can’t believe that I live in California even though I’ve been here for three years. It is so lucky.
Sometimes the things we see daily can suddenly jump out at us. Having a routine, a rhythm can be boring, but it can also add a structure that frees one to observe, and create.
I’ll do another drawing later, since I didn’t have time to do one yesterday.
