Monday's studio time is always short, as it on these Money Mondays that I deal with my financial realities (a grounding reminder that work is not purely about expression). I did what I said in yesterday's post. I went back into yesterday's drawing, erased the woman's head, and her right leg, and re-drew both. I visited the studio early this morning and found the drawing adequate. This surprised me, as looking at it in reproduction makes me feel the new woman's head is too large, but in actuality it make sense in the composition. Perhaps her torso is too small or not robust enough. In any case, it is not worth my time to give it a third stab, so this is what we get.
Today I will go back into the painting "Unexpected." The company that publishes my post cards has asked me to create four new double-sided cards, which they will produce for free. They want me to have this done this week. I want my newest painting to be on one of them. This is inducement for me to finish "Unexpected."
