Watching a dancer onstage performing. An actor in a play performing live. A singer hitting a high note. A diver in the Olympics. A skater nailing a jump. A painter painting paintings. If we don’t hone our skills – If I don’t practice mine - they won’t be there for me when I need them – when I am inspired…to catch that sunlight hitting the barn just so or a sunset burned into my short term memory, a pochade finished by flashlight. Now back to my studio – it’s time to paint again.
