Lost in the Process
A painter escapes the moment by living in the moment. To pick up a palette and brush, to place the brush on the canvas and deposit pigment, to have the painting grow and take place under her direction takes focus and concentration. It also takes the artist away from everything else, into the painting, into the process of creating the painting.
As Twyla Tharp once said:
"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."
