This is how life is like, being in the 'fast lane' but was artists, we can take comfort to 'take it nice and easy' as we all look at our lives through an artistic lens.

Do any of you, when you are feeling or being inspired to paint, draw or sketch and while doing so, your subject is almost standing still (or at least moving slowly LOL) while all others (people and man-made objects) around you just zip on by as if to say 'I am busy and have no time to stop for a moment to catch my breath?'

I maybe the only one of a few artists that experience this moment of stillness or perhaps not...I feel as if my heart and my breath are operating in unison and nothing fast or a blur can get in my way. Its as if, everything seems to slow down almost to a crawl like molasses running up a hill ;).

Enough about that...any opinions, advice or tidbits are welcomed.
