What does this have to do
with art? I can barely hold a paintbrush right now. Hot oil pouches
are applied to the skin in a way that makes the body respond as if it
were suffering a burn. The treatments are cumulative, and so each
treatment adds on to the last—with the “burn” physiology
theory. When the human body receives a burn, a lot happens
physiologically. The body kicks into an emergency “repair” mode
to fix the supposed burn. Anabolism (cellular regeneration) happens,
lending one to feel very tired and physically vulnerable. The
muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones go as soft as a baby's. The
body wants to sleep. This is the state I'm in right now. Repair mode.
As for drawing and
painting, last week I took a class called Faces 101 from wonderful artist Carla
Sonheim. A five day, rapid paced class, I joined late, and managed to
paint and draw my way through four days of the class in two. Whew. I
like to “mosey” with my learning. This was intense. I still
haven't finished the last day. I grew too tired.
The other online class in
which I participated shortyly after is called Intuitive Painting, a
watercolor class from Ms. Paivi, a talented artist in Finland. She sells a download on basic
techniques in watercolor painting. It doesn't get me closer to the
goal that I have to learn to draw and paint realistically, but it is
a lot of fun experimenting with colors, patterns, and textures. As
for my 100 Painting Challenge, I've painted two new watercolors!
