Painting is much like meditation, it is being present and keenly aware, but at the same time, letting go and trusting in all you have learned thus far. Many artists have tried to describe it with phrases such as -"following the muse", "feeling the hand of God on yours", or "being in the flow". Regardless, it is really something undefinable, yet undeniable. I feel the following quote sums it up quite well: “We lose ourselves in the things we love. We find ourselves there, too.”
