After a partly unintentional hiatus, I have decided to rejoin the living (or the blogging) world with some pics of current work. Recent events have caused me to shelve certain projects, and I am slowly reorganizing my priorities. One of the greatest difficulties I have found being an artist (and there are many) is knowing where to invest precious energy. A single decision is better than a million possibilities, but it is difficult to know which course is best. Currently I am working on another complicated still life (the photos are bad iphone camera shots) pictured above. One shot is the drawing before transfer and the other is the oil transfer and beginning stages of the grisaille. I have also continued figure drawing sessions and hope to reopen the studio in the fall for classes and open sessions.
