Enjoying the Process

Sometimes, it's easy to get caught up in the product. One more polar bear picture. One more portfolio piece. One more pen and ink sketch. One more dummy.
But all it takes is a day painting with a child who has no interest in the product, only interest in the glorious process: the smell of the paint, the feel of the brush, the squish of red between two fingers or on the floor. It reminds me of the pure joy of art--the process.
