Busy Energy

August 12, 2012

A busy street?

Do you feel “busy” in this scene? Well, maybe not so much as the space seems rather tranquil by urban standards: a solitary taxi is waiting for a traffic signal to change. Bicyclists are waiting too. It is a Sunday morning perhaps with an opportunity to read a newspaper with a coffee in a cafe around the corner.

In suggesting “busy”  my reference is more about energies to explore. It isn’t simply crossing the street as a taxi waits: I watch how the street moves toward me as the buildings endure what has transpired for decades. I touch the trees to connect with life that compels growth from the concrete. I wonder what the windows have seen.  There are very busy energies here and the canvas will want a story told. I sense what this will be but I’m open and will listen with my heart.

We are each different in how we see and how we connect with things. Another artist will approach this location in a different way. It is so cool how this happens.

To be the artist of this scene, what would your focus be?
