If someone told me even couple of years ago, that art for them is meditation, I wouldn’t get that. For me art is a struggle. It requires pushing oneself.
Yet now I discovered, that mezzotint is a meditation for me.
Yesterday I over-stimulated myself socially (in fact a couple of days in a row I was deliberately doing just that) and had trouble going to sleep. So, now I am calming myself down by working on the new mezzotint plates.
It makes you slow down and pay attention…
