|Pinch Me I'm Cute, graphite, 6x8, 30minute daily drawing session # 37|
I did go into the studio yesterday, not to work, but to get some chicken and ground beef from the freezer--the very same freezer where I keep my palette overnight when a painting session is interrupted and the palette is fresh. The Venetian greeted me. It's amazingly good. Then I glanced up at the drying ledge and saw my Stilettos. It was good too. The two paintings were an interesting contrast. The loosely done stilettos, done in a few short sessions, made me smile.. The carefully planned Venetian, done over weeks of many long sessions, made me grimace. Yet, the two very different approaches to painting attract....Must I choose where and how to roost?
