I remember reading a quote from Lynn Perrella a couple of years ago, that she draws every day as a gratitude ritual. And I couldn't have said it better. Every time I make something, I'm being thankful.
This is part of the piece I did in her Wabi-Sabi workshop last August. That whole day was such a joy, it was all about process and imperfection and self-discovery, and spiritual growth. That whole day was about doing that and doing it in a spirit of community. As the hostess of the workshop said, "there were a lot of happy artists there."
