A few hours (or days) this week of loose exploration in paint.
Exploration of what?
Of how exciting it is to perceive.
Of memory, and how immediate it is, how emotional.
Of the mystery of colour.
Of the fine grain detail of the world, and the way that looking increases understanding – look closer and another level of scale is opened up, another level of precision.
And as for beauty, what is that? Is it a gift?
