|Shades of Blue, by Starr White|
Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I must tell you that I have started reading "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards. But, I'm only on Chapter Three. I've only just completed the first exercise. I haven't gotten to the part where you actually start the exercises to teach you to access the right side of the brain yet. So far, it's just been a discussion about the roles the two hemispheres play in helping us sort out our environment. So, I don't think it's that. Emily and I have been discussing this concept of letting go and working intuitively and freely - outside the confines of conventional thinking. But, I really can't pinpoint the exact cause of the shift or why it seems to have happened overnight and almost without my being aware of it. I just know that something has changed. I feel freer and more relaxed about my work. Something inside me that has been tight and constrained has been loosed and is unfurling. It is difficult to describe in words. It's just sort of a feeling of freedom and confidence and knowing. I like this feeling. I feel like an artist.
