As noted in my previous post, I was exhausted and took a day off. I feel strong again; witness yesterday's output as argument for following one's energy.
The posting of my images in this blog is a tremendous help to me. The photos of my work give me a different perspective. "Man & Man" is 50 X 60 inches in real life, and 5 X 6 inches here. I have often complained about the disparity between viewing an actual work of art versus viewing its reproduction. Reproductions generally stink. Like food going bad, reproductions do not taste right. But here, in reproduction, they serve the purpose of recording my thoughts, and more important to me, they allow me to see them in a format removed from the intensity of the studio. The reproduction's limitation in size compels me to see the quality of their composition, although the colors, values, and textures are compromised.
The drawing I post today is larger than the normal 9 X 12 inches. This one is on 11 X 14 inch paper. I like the larger format and will continue with it for now.
I have nothing more to say today. The work will speak for itself. I believe my venture is going well.
