Work as Play

I am a bit tired after a long week working on a film set. It was a surreal experience, and a lot of hard work, mostly night shoots, so going to bed at 5 am became the routine. Before going to bed I worked on my paintings, and if experience has taught me one thing, you can paint even when you are exhausted. Painting is meditation, it is breathing, and no matter what we have the ability to be aware of the breath and subsequently control it. The act of meditation quiets the mind, and when the mind is quiet the work flows effortlessly. This is a place where I call home, when I am in creative practice. There is no beginning or end, there is only the will to continue on, breathing while working with, playfully, the medium of choice, the brush, the pencil, the knife, and witnessing the journey to wherever it is I am going.
