The Art of Doing Anything!

from my perspective - the best way for me to create an image or to do anything with the skill of art is to relax into it - to remind myself of this I think of tennis - when the ball is coming towards you it is moving in the opposite direction than where you are going to hit it when you return it to the other player on the other side of the net - if you can place yourself in a position and wait till the ball begins to drop - almost the way it drops when you are serving - then there is not so much force in the wrong direction and you can send the ball to where you want it to go with more force -

in the same manner - when I am patient with myself with a brush - a pencil - a mouse - a word until I have it in a position where it is in the most advantageous position for me to make my next move - then I will consider that the secret to making an art of anything -

In this sense there is the studied planning of when and how to carry out any effort - such that the action itself comes with great ease -
