Then the recovery begins. I hang up my wet things to dry. Then I take a long hot shower. Once the bathroom is completely steamed up, and I am feeling warm again, I get dressed in comfy, warm clothing. I make myself something comforting and warm to eat or drink.
Now I pull out a sketch pad, or a writing pad, and start doodling... words and images, whatever comes to mind. I feel like my brain is open in an all new way. I might not do anything with the results right away. But sometime in the future those thoughts and images will bring me to some new artwork.
