Breathe

Take a deep breath.
Raise your shoulders up to your ears then let go, letting your shoulders drop.
OK, now do it again.
Big breath.
Raise your shoulders to your ears then let them go.
If he can do it, so can you.

We get so engrossed while reading the computer screen or so focused when working on getting that brushstroke just right that we just forget to breathe.

So yes, now, right now.
Breathe!!!

Stand up!
Stand out!
Change your perspective and your relationship to your brush and paper.

Take a cue from Jackson Pollock in action.
