Trying something new

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
Erich Fromm

Great quote - but I feel the need to amend:
Living in the year 2009 -
requires the courage to let go
of certainties.
.. . perhaps you've noticed :-)

I love erich fromm!
What a good idea... I don't sketch much, but sketching on newspaper... i'm curious to see how it is. It seems like the pencil will move really smoothly on the surface!

Letting go of certainties=leaving your comfort zone.
Read a great quote yesterday too that struck a chord in a similar vein to this quote:
"The biggest killer of dreams is procrastination." -Lisa Fisco
From an article in "More" magazine about women who dared to redefine themselves in their adulthood.
Hey-did you do that drawing?

Who ate the cake that came on that doily?

Stephanie said...

I need to draw more

Christina said...

This is incredibly original! Amen to, the quote. ; )

Leaving a comfort zone is always a good thing, in my book. Experimenting, trying something new? Just say yes! xoxox

drawing is so meditative - slowing one down as the eyes caress the view
savoring the moment in the object - I love drawing over layers peeking through underneath as you have done here - like the layers of our lives and the rich density of experience - leaving our comfort zone allows our comfort zone to grow...
