this was a week full of creative adventures
and also I cooked a big dinner for a friend's birthday.
i'm pooped and going to give myself a day off. but only
a day because I have many weekend plans.
here are a few daily coffee shop drawings.
and continued charcoal love
I did a few monotypes, first applying inks to
a paper. after letting it dry, I ran it through a press
with an image. finally adding collage.
I worked on this large spring abstract painting.
finally, went to the santa monica hanger artists
open house. I found it odd that many of the artist
studies were not open but did enjoy the trip. my
apologies for not having the artist names for these pieces.
this is gus. his mother has a studio next door. her work is below,
the pencil birdhouses. gus just returned from painting his way through a
multi country tour. his mother said that as a student in college, gus
was on his way to being an attorney. when he mentioned that what
he would do when he had enough money was to pursue art, she said,
why wait? what a refreshing outlook as a parent. It turned out to be a good
decision for gus.
each activity had its unique and interesting
aspect for me to ponder and learn. as you probably
can guess, I try to squeeze as much in my life as I can.
thanks so much for joining me this week.
