Week 4 in my yearlong sketchbook practice. Each one of these was a complete surprise to me. They always are a surprise in some way but especially so this week. I was overwhelmed with work and each time I sat down in a little bit of a panic, with no plan, no inclination, no idea at all of where to begin, my mind racing – impatient to get back to work. And each time the little experiment slowed me down and focused and steadied me – like taking a deep breath.
