Wandelen

M'n therapeutische schoenen. Ik beoefen geen sport, maar maak regelmatig een fikse wandeling. Ik schat dat er al wel 1000 kilometer op zit. De omgeving is mooi hier. We wonen aan de rand van het dorp, één keer de grote weg oversteken en je bent op de hei en in het bos.

Sorting the big ones

Large black and white prints on the table and the floor.

A relatively short session at the studio this evening. Sorting the big ones. Reviewing the large format pieces in preparation for the exhibition. Trying to get an idea of what’s all there takes up quite a bit of space.

Good thing I did tear up some pieces and threw them away. That always helps. Not having an undo function available can be very refreshing at times. That’s also why I draw with pen, not pencil, it forces direct decisiveness.

Experiments to nowhere in particular

“Attachment to outcome is the biggest obstacle to creativity. As soon as you become attached to a specific outcome, you feel compelled to control and manipulate what you’re doing. And in the process you shut yourself off to other possibilities.”
