Starting Fresh

Nothing like uprooting everything you own and moving it to a new location to get your mind in the Clean Slate state of mind.  And when you haven’t been very active in the studio for about a month, you may feel like you’ve lost all your momentum and you’re back to Square One, or as this photo suggests Age 3.  But it could be argued that some child-like creativity would freshen up my stale adult drawings.  “Right Pablo?”  “That’s right, Aaron, remember that all children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”  “Thanks, Pablo.”

In the spirit of that Picasso sentiment, here’s a drawing my oldest son did when he was around 5, I think, and below is my “interpretation.”  I would certainly interpret it differently these days…I was really into Bonnie Prince Billy at the time;)  For one thing I would take advantage of that dust cloud around the musical prince’s feet.  He must be tapping up a storm, or as the kidz call it, “Peanuts Freestylin!”
