At last I am cleaning up after the storm. The storm was not just the hurricane. This past month has been full of distractions and hurricane Irene was just one of them. Yesterday I pulled out the painting "Pulling Onions." I began its process toward completion. The background is all I touched, so it will not look a heck of lot different to you. In the next few days I'll finish it, and then I will publish an advertising post card, which will include images of "Pulling Onions" and "Pond." I will keep you informed so you may request the card after its publication.
Yesterday's drawing was another good one, and illustrates my march toward increased mastery. The composition includes a spatial rotation caused by directional lighting: the standing figure is lit from the right side and the woman's head is lit from behind. I also enjoy the spatial drop off to the man's feet.
