Olhao Portugal – http://www.artinthealgarve.com From one of my many sketchbooks.Those who follow my blog will know that I take a break from all social media including my blog when I go away to paint.
Given this, I thought the following passage from my book, ‘The Apple Exercise’ would be appropriate.
‘Given the fast pace of life today and the fact that so many of us are plugged into technology of one kind or another, our collective senses have been deadened.
Along with this comes a feeling of loss. A loss that in many ways we are unable to identify.
As we constantly try to fill the ever widening holes with more and more frenetic activity and stuff, our frustration levels grow.
Feeding our senses through the creative process, in all its many forms can produce almost miraculous changes, which lead to a sense of well being and fulfilment.’
I will be back here at the beginning of May…..
