“Two Inner Senses”
(watercolor, charcoal, crayon, pastel on paper)
This piece is a collaboration between Yosi, a 3 year old, and her mom.
As a non producing artist, I constantly struggle with being able to produce art, as if I can’t dig deep enough, or let go long enough to put something down.
Watching Yosi draw, I am inspired by her expressive strokes, fearless choice of color and care-free motivation.
This piece illustrates my personal inner struggle between holding on and letting go, being fearful and fearless and making nothing or something.
