Paying Attention with Art

When is the lat time you ever truly looked at a cloud? Or at a tree? There’s so many of them that often we just take them for granted.

To get a more constructive hobby than video games, I recently got my pencils and scrapbook out to get back into drawing which made me look around for things to draw.

I never noticed the amount of details, or colors, a cloud had. They never really mattered until I had to draw them which made me realized that I never really analyzed anything before. If I missed the details of the clouds, what else could i have missed over the years?

I’m always in a hurry to get things done and drawing forces me to stop to appreciate the simple things. It forces me to pay attention.
