In a recent post I noted a change in structure of my studio time. Not-so-long-ago I began each studio session with a drawing, or two. Now I go into the studio and get swept away by either a drawing or a painting. Rarely more than one image absorbs me in one studio session. The drawing I show today took me two days of studio time! I cannot remember a drawing taking more than a few hours, or more than one studio session. So this is a first occurrence! It is an excellent drawing! It seems my new approach does well for the quality of my work.
It is simply a great drawing. You have to see it to believe it! My work is hitting harder in all the ways art should hit a viewer. Yesterday's drawing is substantive; emotive in texture, emotive in form, emotive in composition, emotive in light and in darkness. One dictionary definition of texture is "the character or appearance of a fabric as determined by the arrangement and thickness of its threads." This happens in Drawing 07·26·2018, except the threads are replaced with pencil marks. Wow & Zow! Sticking with it makes sense. Even the most unlikely of avenues, when followed with ardor and passion, result in excellent results. I quote again Oliver Wendall Holmes: "Every calling is great when greatly pursued."
