A Peek at my Easel
When I'm working at my easel, I listen to interviews with and about artists, writers and poets as well as audiobooks. I often write down things that jump out at me. I write the quotes in pencil directly onto my drawing board that's clamped to my easel. Later, I'll transcribe them into my studio journal but I don't erase them from the easel. The ones that I've accidentally painted over, I'll rewrite. Their words make me feel less alone in what I'm doing.
Do you have a collection of artist quotes in your work area? How do you keep them?
