There is a certain calm that overwhelms me under the moonlight.
I feel calm, peaceful and secure.
In the mountains, with the struggles of real life behind me
and, for just a moment, I can think clearly and my problems aren’t so big anymore.
I have grown up so much under Mr. Moon, he knows my secrets, my hopes and my dreams.

I feel a similar peace when I paint. It is unlike drawing, or sculpting or designing.
With painting I go to a place where things move a little slower,
where my mistakes are easily adjusted to, or accepted and enhanced, and my strengths are vivid and apparent.
I am in full control of what happens, stoke by stroke.
It’s an adventure where I do not know of the outcome.
And when it is all finished, I have created something that didn’t exist before I took the time to create it.
I don’t always love what I have created in an artistic appreciative way,
but I love it in a way that is personal to me, because a piece of my soul is in it,
a piece of time that was traded to experience the creation of it.

Thanks for reading this sappy post, I’m just a sappy person, what can I say?

I’ll be posting another new painting tomorrow.

much love,

Sarah Kessler

This is a projects from my 2D design class. 11×17 graphite on illustration board.

Art is incredible, it’s not a matter of who is the best or who makes the most money. It’s about expression and creativity and everyone has a completely different vision than you do. It’s amazing to create something that might mean something to someone out there. I hope people can connect to my work in some way or another.

Fly

I let myself go, I open up my sketchbook and forget the world for a moment while my mind wonders and my hands move. Before I know it I’ve somewhat unconsciously created a drawing that’s fresh and new to the world. No one has seen it but me, it’s mine to share.
