Crossing The Threshhold

All art is made in the moment;

And all that is made in the moment is art.

 

 

 

The secret to performance is no secret at all;

But instead what remains when there are no secrets remaining.

 

 

 

During my final year of graduate actor training at the University of Delaware’s former Professional Theatre Training Program, I took up brush and ink painting. During rehearsals, when not acting, I would quickly paint scenes from the production I was part of on cold-press watercolor paper no larger than a postcard.

Of the many hundreds of sketch-paintings I did, there were only two that painted themselves.

These two remain sacred to me, and reminders of the gateway before which I stood many times… never crossing the threshhold fully, though poking my head through unknowingly from time to time.
