6/9/16 Heartening

A very timely article for those wondering if they even have a trajectory - which I do wonder about at times. Just keep trying to do the work. As Ben Franklin would say "Every little makes a mickle!" And no, my third grade teacher didn't even think that was word! The Scots, though, know better. :)

4/16/16 Influence

 

I just posted an article with an interview of Graham Nickson. While it is an older article, it captures much of the rigorous philosophy and beliefs about art, drawing and painting that come through during the New York Studio School Drawing Marathons. Graham has been an amazing influence on me, and has kicked my art skills and understanding up the stairs every time I have attended. Hope to be back there again this summer or fall.

Another major influence right now - post show, post work, post everything let down. A time of lower energy, but also an opportunity to get my studio back in order after some flooding, not to mention the minor hurricane that hits getting ready for an exhibit. Back very soon to my daily drawings and studies for some additional big paintings and a still life that are all on my mind.
