sunday church drawing
i draw in church during the sermons. it helps me hear and retain the words. i usually begin by drawing the first thing i see-a piece of furniture, the shadows in the architecture, the pattern of someone's shirt-and let the drawing take on a life of it's own. most of the time, the object or pattern i started with isn't recognizable. i only work on these drawings for one sermon and rarely work back into them. here's one from a few weeks ago.
i now also draw in meetings, lectures, etc., whenever and wherever i'm sitting and required to listen. i find i can concentrate better when i'm doing something with my hands.
