My workstation plus a WIP for the Durango Botanical Society!  I’m moving my desk out of the bedroom and into the studio/laundry room right now, so I’m kind of poaching space at the student Union to work for now.  This also shows a bit of my color process- I have to keep working in circles or I forget what I’m doing.

In the future, the great division will be between those who have trained themselves to handle these complexities and those who are overwhelmed by them – those who can acquire skills and discipline their minds and those who are irrevocably distracted by all the media around them and can never focus enough to learn.
—  Robert Greene, Mastery

“Whether our action is wholesome or unwholesome depends on whether that action or deed arises from a disciplined or undisciplined state of mind. It is felt that a disciplined mind leads to happiness and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering, and in fact it is said that bringing about discipline within one’s mind is the essence of the Buddha’s teaching.”  
~ Dalai Lama ~ The Art of Happiness
