“In silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves.” — Rumi I read a lot of blogs. I read a lot of online pieces about art. Most are about tools, or technique. Many blogs are about some struggle. Stop. Stop trying so hard. Stop making things so difficult. Don’t over think. […]

A calming effect. Looking at the moon on a night like this one is sublime. For me, it’s calming. It’s peaceful. It’s quiet.
