I had the opportunity to practice bit by bit. I circled back to my station throughout the day. Had to be mobile and did sessions in multiple locations. Loved the closing breakthru. 1,2,learn. So I was putting a dot, then another dot, then I would Stop. And I would look ahead at where I was planning to put the line. And learn. Looking to where I was going with the next expression. Then it became really easy to focus on royal emotions. Found this amazing peace and calm and joy in the simple lines I was pulling on the page. Nice shift in my approach that I think I’ll keep. Stopping to learn before I put down my stroke. Nice!
Oh and twoofer! I got my 100day challenge starter. Yay!May 3, 2020 at 7:26 pm #507759
[DAY 2]I sat down outside today to do my task.
I stopped before making a stroke. Breathe. I also watched an art instruction video earlier. Very inspiring. Drawing the head from NMA. It definitely inspired me to focus on the head for a portion of this challenge. Today was about being gently consistent. I did my task, then when I felt my energy dipped. I set down the tools and bounced to something else.
The win is that I had some very clean lines that delighted me very much in their making. And I circled back to lessons learned prior. Good day.
Looking forward to bringing forward powerful emotions and presence in my artistic journey. And relishing every step along the way. Oh, and breathe. Gotta remember to breathe. Yay!May 4, 2020 at 7:30 am #508491CeciliaVedbergParticipantNo badges. No points.

Today I got a new pen.
I learned to drop my attachment to a magic pencil or pen. Any old thing off the street is suitable to practice the work. However, I really love the Zig Cocoiro letter pen. My goodness. Such precision. Ink lasts forever. And the tip. Well, in a league of it’s own. Ok enough gushing. I got really in the zone and was relishing in weaving the lines in the tiniest spaces. And visualizing where exactly I wanted to lay the line. Important that I was limiting the length of my strokes to where I could accomplish near perfection. bit by bit is better. Leason learned from Dr.B and proved time and time again in life. Yay!
My accomplishment was in the keen patience I honed in the process today. Totally immersed in the laying down of lines. And I got a lot of mileage with my new Cocoiro that I love so much. What a treat!
Bringing the lesson forward into my future I want to be intentional about a few things:
- Lay down the line on purpose
- Reach to drop into flow/zone state
- Practice is fun trying to eek out a line through a tiny little gap
My goal tomorrow is to achieve the same level of zone state I had today when I was doing the S curves.
