How many variations can an artist find while sketching from the same seat? I don't really know, however I'm starting to find some answers. This morning I went vertical and began to sketch by centering the handle of my funky coffee mug at the bottom of the paper. One line leads to another and, lo and behold, a subtle zig-zag emerges! It may not be as profound as Prometheus bringing us fire stolen from Zeus, but I'm seeing something new just the same. The more I observe, the better I see as I continue to draw. And there's no risk of being bound to my chair and having my liver eaten daily by an eagle.
