Yesterday was my financial reckoning day, sometimes I refer to it as a Money Monday. Usually I don't get into the studio, but I had been looking at a lot of Modigliani's work. So, I found myself with an hour free and made the drawings you see here. If you look at my previous two blog posts, with their four drawings, you will see where Modigliani and I have common interests. It is mostly in the shape of things preceding the volume of things. Art historians write about the almond eyes in Modigliani's faces. Sometimes their almond-ness is so dominant as not to allow Modigliani to place an iris or a pupil within them. You will see me venture in this direction in yesterday's second drawing. It was fun and entertaining, but not completely me.
The R&R in the title was about my two days doing stuff other than art. One day dedicated to gardening, and the other to a sunny day followed by a celebratory dinner.
