Danger! Danger! Run Away!
I threw out the roses. And I'm reading a book that makes me think of art as merchandise--a product to be promoted and marketed. Dirty words to me for years. Business words. Policies and paper work,supplier hunts and sales mishaps--the stuff of W-O-R-K. The stuff of a thing called a J-O-B. So I ran away from those thoughts and retrieved the roses and painted them again this morning to warm-up. I think I like this rendition the best. Back to the portrait this afternoon. Got a good charcoal drawing yesterday, much better than the first. I'm starting to get a feeling for the subject.
