Lent Day 19

I realized I was getting all caught up in the product, which is exactly what I didn't want to happen with this Lent thing. I wanted to let myself play in the space. So I made myself just draw today, in ink. No going back, no erasing, hardly any thinking. Just some things I might put in my garden, a stalk of corn, a tomato gone crazy in its cage, and some lettuce, with one bunch shooting to seed. I'm trying very hard not to think about whether it's a good picture or not, whether corn really looks like that, if the tomatoes are growing out of the right parts of the vine. It is my drawing, fast, flowing. Now I need to release it.
