As kids we were all very observant of the world around us, giant sponges soaking up every bit of info our minds could hold. It is how we learn and grow. As we get older we forget to stop and “smell the roses”, there never seems to be time for this sort of thing.
This summer I reminded myself of the importance of seeing and I forced myself to look, learn and stare at every bit of visual information I could find. I filled my head with new ideas and now they are starting to show in the new images I create. Stop and Stare!
