Drawing is something I do if I want a quick way to connect with my muse. Life feels so busy sometimes and painting is a huge commitment. Yesterday I spent seven hours at the canvas and it felt like I barely scratched the surface with the painting. Painting is consuming and demanding whereas drawing is a superb way to give myself a feeling in a very short time that I have been creative. Sometimes when I am at a comedy club waiting to go on stage I will draw while listening to the other acts. It is very grounding and gets me relaxed, out of my head and in the moment.
