1. Opening a fresh tube of paint. 
  2. The elegance of newly stretched and primed canvas, awaiting the very first mark.
  3. The magic that happens when I leave a painting overnight: it somehow looks different in the morning, and I’m unsure why.
  4. Feeling completely “juiced” whenever I visit a great exhibition at a museum or gallery.
  5. Being outdoors. Getting away from the constant hum of technology; from the bath of WiFi signals that we immerse ourselves in every single day. A place where one only hears the whisper of wind conversing with trees. And nothing else.
