Yoyuu is a japanese word meaning the presence of a momentary pause. It is an imagined space you take for yourself to arrange mental or physical clutter. In the noun form, it represents a balancing act where external actions are guided by internal stability. (Kinfolk, Volume 15)
In an attempt to relax, arrange my mental clutter and find internal stability, I picked up a more forgiving medium than watercolor and ink--acrylic. If you make a mistake with acrylic, not to worry...acrylic can be applied thickly and opaquely to fix all errors. To my surprise, I can get it to act like watercolor as well! The result is that I can relax more as I paint/draw and get the loose effect that I love. I have started drawing into my paintings rather that painting into my drawings. I had almost forgotten how much I love painting and its ability to define borders through color rather than lines.
