Swallowed By Art

This happens a lot. I have trouble knowing where my art ends, and I begin. Or where my art begins and I, uh...hmmm.

This is a younger me, which I guess is true for every photo, unless it is streaming video. But even that would be a younger virtual visage because of the time it takes for light to go from image to camera to eye to brain.

Do you get lost in your work? Your art? Your passions?

I was lost today. Meant to spend only a couple of hours working, and when I looked up, the day was gone.

One of my big passion is reading. If I am into a book the world dissappears and time stops and I go to another world. Love it.

I love it when the words fall like Texas rain. I remember this one day, I went to the library when it opened and the next thing I knew they flashed the lights and they were closing. I had written 24 pages in one day. (That is a lot for me.) 2 to 8 page is my general output. I couldn't believe it. It was like magic.

I love the way you think, every present moment gets to be the the past in an instant...
I do get lost, but not in my work, I am ashamed to say.;) I get lost when being creative outside work doing things that please me, instead of doing things that are necessary.;)
Have a lovely weekend,

I got lost yesterday- for the first time in a long time- and it felt really really good- theraputic-can't go that long without doing art!

Shane, I can relate.The days go by unbelievably fast when I am in a zone.

Molly, i heard you are having more flooding. Hope you are ok. Funny story about you and the library. Makes me smile.

Thank you Zuzana. No shame in getting lost in what you love. That's the way it should be.

Oi Denise! Muito prazer. Thank you for being a follower.

Julia, I agree it is pure therapy to get lost in one's art. Glad you had one of those days. Love your piece of the girl with the braids. Awesome!

I'm not in the flood plain, so no worries about flooding here. It was crazy Texas rain. Imagine turning on the bathtub faucets full blast, imagine that kind of water pouring out of the sky for hours. Oh, yes, also imagine that the water falls horizontally.
