I recently read according to the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, “Art-making is a contemplative practice that affects us internally, through our thoughts and emotions, as well as externally, through the creation of object and images that can serve as sources of inspiration…”  Contemplative art may be somewhat divided into two categories: Process and Product. My artwork is a combination of contemplative and descriptive. However, during my daily practice, contemplation rules. I enjoy being in the flow of the process day-to-day. There is often a stepping back to ask “What could I do next? What could I do differently with color, shape, form or line? Is it finished or would one more mark help or hurt?”.
