Being an Artist means being a Problem Solver
I always laugh when people say I should go paint to relax. Painting is a process and it's problem solving. I have to be present and concentrating and willing to tackle issues as they arise. That's why I love painting: it's not relaxing, it's all consuming, and having my mind taken over by the process feeds my soul. I found a solution to the scratch in the paper above, and the finished drawing is on my Faces page, and is now an award winning artwork for the Huntington Beach Art League.
