Monday Motivator: Restate and Reimagine

Monsieur P Artiste Monday Motivator from Marion Boddy-Evans Isle of Skye art Studio

“Progress is never permanent, will always be threatened, must be redoubled, restated and reimagined if it is to survive.”
Zadie Smith

This quote is about society, not art, but it could be.

If you aim to stay at a particular point, it gradually wears down and you one day notice you’re not where you thought you were.

If you’re thinking this is more depressing a thought than motivating, it’s not a Sisyphus scenario, more of a never-stop-practising-your-scales situation. Some days it’s simple C major, other days tackling C-flat major.

I think my favourite artistic scale is exploring different blues and my should-practice-more scale is tone vs colour. What’s yours?

Quote Zadie Smith
