πŸ™ When the mind is at peace,
The world, too, is at peace
Nothing is real. Nothing is absent.
Not holding onto reality,
Not getting stuck in the void.
You are neither holy, nor wise
Just an ordinary fellow
who has completed his work.

 A mentor lent me that book in college; it really changed my outlook on life. I will always keep trying to find peace and joy in life's smallest moments 😌 and continue walking on a path of knowledge & growth 🌱 Some days are harder than others, and that's OKAY. πŸƒ
❓❔❓❔❓What helps you to reach a peaceful mindset on a tough day? For me: drawing, meditating, exercising and spending time with loved ones usually does the trick. πŸ–πŸ’ͺπŸ’–πŸ™ I'm nOtTt very good at yoga- but I like to do the #treepose πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ€·

I had a ton of fun doodling at the Cooper Hewitt Museum today! It's such an underrated museum, with great employees and beautiful architecture. 🏰 ⚠On Saturdays they have extended hours and pay-what-you-wish pricing; && I highly recommend relaxing in their garden. 🌱 I got to unwind amidst their lush greenery and catch up with a great friend as the fireflies came out! β˜„

😫 flowers please, sunshine please... πŸŒžπŸ™πŸŒΌ Today does NOT feel like Springtime in New York. ⛇ My husband & I spent 2 hours this A.M. shoveling out our driveway. 😩 Enough already!

 I've been thinking a lot about the Grant Wood show that's up at the Whitney.

I read an interview with Carol Bove; she said that upon completing school, she locked herself in a studio and allowed herself to make whatever art came naturally. Without the pressure of watchful eyes, she wound up making lots of drawings of pretty women. I laughed so hard when I read that, bc I've been drawing implicitly lately. & Sometimes that's just what comes out! It's hard for me to share these warmup sketches, since they're shot in 1 take & I tend to be a perfectionist... It's easy to feel embarrassed. πŸ™ˆ .
Carol's husband Gordon was my Foundation year professor; a great guy. He was always telling me that I overworked my drawings. It was true. I didn't know when to stop! 🀣 Fast forward to my junior year & Michael St. John told me that I wasn't spending ENOUGH time on each drawing. This seemed contradictory, but it was also true. I wasn't reliably reaching photorealistic quality or exercising patience. He knew that I could if I wanted to, if I slowed it down. But I didn't know what I wanted yet.
.
In Senior Studios I got a lot of valuable feedback from my peers and professors. Under the guidance of Keith Mayerson, whose work & worldview inspire me tremendously, I found my rhythm and confidence. πŸ’‘
.
I am forever grateful to them and to Rob Fischer, Claudia Joskowicz, Hiroshi Sunairi, Jason Martin, Adam Putnam, Jesse Bransford, David Rimanelli, Kanik Chung, Elaine Li & Kirby Gookin. On a personal level, you all held me to higher standards than I held myself to, at the time. In hindsight I can see how bad I was at accepting criticism πŸ˜ŸπŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ but I seriously needed it. In addition to helping me become a better artist, you all helped me grow as a person. I hope you know how much I appreciate your mentorship and advice, still today. πŸ™ .
Anyway, my point is, sometimes we need to hear things that we don't want to hear from people we respect. And sometimes we need to make art that come from a weird, incomprehensible place inside. πŸ€·πŸ’– I'm very grateful for the artists, friends and teachers who have helped me in this crazy life. So0 please enjoy this drawing, or, well, drawingS of pretty women πŸ’πŸŽ¨ @ambidextrousart

➑ These works are a meditation on implicit and explicit actions. As an exercise, this method of creating challenges my typical modality of thought. Inspired by process-based practices including Expressionism and Happenings, a major part of each work is the act of its creation.

Windows frame our view. 🏘 Our literal vantage points and our worldviews, too. πŸŒŽπŸ’‘ When you look outside: do you see peace? Or do you see chaos? I've lived in houses and apartments all over NY, & I love to reflect on former views from different windows in my life. This isn't one of them, though! This one's just made up! 🀷🀣 I've been lucky enough to wake up and see the illuminated Empire State Building, the deep blue water of the Long Island sound, or the familiar leafy treetops of my parents' backyard so far. But I've never lived anywhere with a mountain view β›°πŸž Maybe someday! .

This one was just a fun, quick sketch this morning (using my old letraset markers)! Letraset & Prismacolor are my favorite fine art markers because of their dual tips. Been using Letrasets for >10 years now and I still have some from my first set!

In the last few years, I've been developing a habit of going for nature walks. They help me to clear my head, relax, feel centered. I'll go for a few miles - almost every day now. It's a routine that I never imagined myself cultivating, especially in contrast with my time in NYC and the crowded, chaotic nature of cities in general. Although I'm typically pretty social and outgoing, these walks are a time of solitude and self-reflection for me. I really wanna just go outside!!!
The freezing temps in NY are driving me craZy because my walks have been cut short (I'm a wimp) 😨😡
So! These drawings are another new habit that I'm trying to get to take root. They serve as a type of warm-up in the studio. It's fun to challenge myself and practice, not taking them too seriously. I hope u enjoy πŸ˜„πŸ˜˜ #ambidextrous #ARTLIFE #🌲 #🌳 #🌳🌳🌳🌳 @cooperhewitt @metmuseum @stormkingartcenter @whitneymuseum @longhousereserve @diabeacon @wavehill β¬…just some of my *favorite* New York institutions with outdoor pavilions & gardens - I can't wait for the Spring time πŸ’– to hike the trails at NCMA and grab some prosecco on the roof of the Met.  #idrawwith2hands
