Yesterday was one of them. I did crack open the studio. I did a charcoal of JD. I did wipe it out, shut the doors and climb the stairs to the kitchen where perhaps I would be more successful?
When I have days in the studio where nothing happens, I'm thrilled to have dinner to get my mind off whatever didn't work. But on days where everything is going great and you don't want to put down your brush for fear of losing the magic, I wish I had a dinner that was made in polished stone and all I had to do was run it under water for an hour and serve.
The following photographs are what we had for dinner yesterday. Of course, aside from being sauteed, boiled, steamed, baked and photographed, they've been enhanced and piqued in Photoshop Pro where I really have no expertise at all. I just like to fool around and hope I pick up some know-how on the way. After auto correcting, underexposing, enhancing the colors a number of times and whatnot, I played around with special effects and liked how dinner would look in polished stone best.
