Oh happy day...well, actually happy moment late last night. I finally successfully lost the edge of my green marble. I imagine those reading my thoughts here are artists or art lovers and can appreciate a well-executed lost edge. But, there are other benefits of 'losing.' Lose, let go of, don't own situations that are not yours. Lose yourself in your passion, whatever that may be. Yesterday's Seattle Times newspaper had an article called The Art of Focusing by David Brooks. Interesting reading. Back to painting now and my pursuit of more lost edges.
