Childish views of the word practice.
And a bowl drawn in a sketchbook
I read recently that someone through that prayers ended with an “OH-MAN!”. It was a mistaken understanding from childhood that the person brought well into their twenties.
I think people have mistaken understanding of words all the time.
One of the words that we may have mistakenly understood is the word ‘Practice’.
As a child the word practice meant something like torture or penance. The thing is when I did find something I loved, a new game or sport - a new ‘practice’. I was discouraged from doing it. Those were distractions and obsessions.
These day’s what “practice” means to me is: “The thing you do”
For many people that is a job.
My job is a part of my practice now. Not the other way around.
Part of my practice is to draw icons daily ( as daily as I can) , I’ve moved this into a small sketchbook now, and have found it thoroughly enjoyable. Prompts help with the practice, but the practice is not about the prompts.
You can watch me practice here. It’s 30 seconds of me drawing a bowl.
What does the word ‘Practice’, mean to you?
awesome bowl. I love how you mixed the brush texture with the dots texture
