Monday Motivator: Sketchbook as a Window

On the Isle of Lewis

“Windows are . . . a patch of the world, arbitrarily framed, from which we are physically isolated. The only thing you can do is look. You have no influence over what you will see. Your brain is forced to make drama out of whatever happens to appear.” — Sam Anderson

Letter of Recommendation: Looking Out the Window, New York Times Magazine, 7 April 2016

Now delete the word “no” before “influence”.
Then substitute the word “sketchbook” for “window”.
Then substitute the word “draw” for “look”.

“A sketchbook page is a patch of the world, arbitrarily framed. The only thing you can do is draw. You have influence over what you will see. Your brain is forced to make drama out of whatever happens to appear.”
