    I Don't

    I don't really have a reaction to one. If I was in a room with a blank canvas it would probably go unnoticed by me. I would definitely see it because I am aware of everything around me, but I am also usually lost in thought about something else already so it would never enter my...

    Excitement

    A new page/canvas means that anything could happen. Anything. Maybe the page is destined to be a page of notes, or a page of doodles. Maybe the canvas is going to be saved somehow and showcased in a museum hundreds of years in the future. And the destiny doesnt always mean that's...

    Oh No, Not Another One!

    There are some many blanks canvases and papers of all types around here I don't have much reaction at all. It IS kind of frustrating to look at all the partly finished canvases and papers, though. Recently going through my art and trying to make sense of what I've done (scanned...
