YEARS AGO we were hiking in the mountains around Vail. As we came out into a meadow I saw a woman sitting on a rock with her watercolors out and capturing the field. As we passed her I whispered to Kelly, “Someday, I want that to be me”. He answered why would I wait and say someday?

YEARS AGO I was at an art museum and noticed a woman sitting in front of a painting at the exhibit and sketching. She had a simple sketchbook and pencil and she was being present and really looking. Once again I had that deep desire for that to be me too.

Fast forward to this creative life I now am saturated in and the daily decisions I still have to make of being intentional. The biggest impactor of whether I am being that woman in the meadow or that woman in the art museum is whether I am out in life PREPARED!

I have a studio full of all the things but my DAILY PRACTICE and SHOWING UP is usually based upon simple supplies and choosing paper and pencil or paper and watercolors over my phone. Having my eyes open to the in between moments of life and grabbing them.

Do my actions align with my words? Do I say I want to be the woman in the meadow and woman in the art museum with my lips but my actions prove the opposite?

I hope you will join me in Wild at Art with Daune Pitman. In a few of my lessons I share how to make a simple sketchbook with your favorite paper and then show how to contour sketch and paint daily. These are simple exercises with simple tools. Showing up doesn’t have to be complicated.
