Morning Warm Up

 All you painters out there, how do you "warm-up"? Here is what I sometimes do to get the creative juices flowing.....

15X30 Canvas

    I write, faithful Sharpie in hand,  Usually all over my canvas. Whatever words come to mind, they just spill over onto my blank, raw, fabric. At times, they won't even make sense to anyone but myself.  This works for me and gives me a closer connection to my work. Sometimes, in my finished paintings you will see a hint of these words just peeking out from under layers of color. Other times, the words are only visible to me I know they are there.

What connects you to your work?
