“I’m not an abstractionist… I’m not interested in relationships of color or forms… I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions—tragedy, ecstasy, doom and so on… The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them.”—Mark Rothko, 1956

I just read the bit about your new remedy- it's ironic because all I ever do is post my sketchbook pages and nothing else. Perhaps, the two of us fill the void. #artsouls 😘

Definitely #artsouls. Everything you share is such an inspiration to me. I NEED to be more playful. I get to canvas and get so rigid. I’m not sure what changes in me. But I always love looking at your work.

I haven’t been working in my sketchbook as much lately. Mainly focusing on paintings, but it’s been calling to me.

Then I went through my blog to see what pages I have and haven’t shared. I haven’t posted a single spread since 2014! That’s just unacceptable and will be remedied soon.
