The Confident Creative

A quick sketch and coffee before a grocery shop

'When we approach drawing as a salutary practice, we're not drawing to create something to put on our walls or even really to get "good" at drawing; we're drawing to be fully present in this moment and to know ourselves as we are - beings of spirit, unique, creative, and compassionate. That's what shows up in our drawings. We can enter the place of peace and happiness every time we sit down to draw. When we know it, we can take it with us as we step into the world.

'How to do a drawing practice? Just show up, day after day.'

- Cat Bennett in The Confident Creative: Drawing to Free the Hand and Mind

Loving this book at the moment.
