As a creature of habit, I always dine in the same Italian restaurant. It’s a place where the manager greets me by name, and I never have to wait for a table–where the waiters know I like my salad dry, my water without ice, and my bread basket full. The food is well-prepared, served piping hot, and never fails to stimulate my senses.
On my Artist’s Journey, I have a new ‘favorite destination’ that also serves up sensory delights. Painting in the Impasto style, or ‘knife painting’, gives my normally detail-oriented brain a chance to play, unwind, and color outside the lines. There’s always a table waiting when I get there, and I know just what to order–a colorful meal, stirred up with a palette knife, that is sure to satisfy my soul.
