Daily Paper Prompt #25: Create Art Elsewhere

“Journeys are the midwives of thought. Few places are more conducive to internal conversations than a moving plane, ship or train. There is an almost quaint correlation between what is in front of our eyes and the thoughts we are able to have in our heads: large thoughts at times requiring large views, new thoughts new places. Introspective reflections which are liable to stall are helped along by the flow of the landscape. The mind may be reluctant to think properly when thinking is all it is supposed to do."
Alain de Botton

DPP #25: Take your art on the road. Grab your art travel kit {see DPP #18} and a journal and tuck them in a bag or backpack. Draw, write or work in your journal outdoors or in a public space. Consider your backyard, a coffee shop, the library, while waiting for your kid's skateboarding lessons, an art museum or a bench in the park. There is a different vibe in working in a new space. The scents, sights, sounds, mood, even the temperature is different. 

I've been drawing in public spaces for 6 years. I started taking along a wirebound journal and gelly rolls in my purse {it's a big purse, admittedly} when my kids were at swimming lessons or tae kwon do. Sometimes I listen to listen to my ipod and get immersed in what I am drawing. I've drawn in coffee shops, book stores, airplanes, waiting rooms. In the car at carpool and at the soccer fields of North Texas. At a classical music concert in Venice and amidst tourists in Saint Marks Square. A few years ago, I made a list of places.
