There is a thin line between great and stupid. I am not writing about the painting (above), but the drawing (below). Yesterday I put a lot of time and energy into finishing this drawing, and I moved my feelings from stupid to great. This was not just me, but a regular visitor to my studio saw this drawing in its current state and gushed with positive enthusiasm. Upon hearing this I was, initially, dumbfounded. I began this drawing as a less controversial, more child-like drawing, hoping it would sell in a local charity auction. Never thinking I would put so much time or energy into this drawing, I had intended it to be a simple and sellable item in a northern New England town which mostly exhibits landscapes and such in their homes. Now I have a new dilemma. If I price this properly for the auction it will not sell (too expensive). If it does not sell it will be useless to the local charity. It seems I need to make a new drawing for the charity auction.
The painting goes well. I only had time to put around 45 minutes into it yesterday. More to come...
