Sketchbook Project

My sketchbook arrived from the Brooklyn Art House. Now I need to fill it up and get it back to New York by January 15, 2011 as part of the Sketchbook Project. My theme is "Nighttime Stories".
I am a little disappointed that the paper in the sketchbook is so thin. I was planning to continue with collage work. This paper is a challenge.

magical Texas highways

Those Texas highways lead to creative thinking for me. I have planned out so many projects and paintings while riding across West Texas. Then again washing dishes often has the same effect on me ... just doesn't seem as magical.

Jim Klapchuk Drawing


Here is a detail from a drawing by Jim Klapchuk. The girl in this drawing is me in 1976 in Alaska. I thought this drawing was long lost.

Past Studio

A few years ago my studio was in my building on Main Street. When I sold the building many things went into storage. I have designated July as the month to sort through the stored items. The plan is to do a little each day. Here I am on day 4 and I have already found work that I had forgotten. This is actually fun.
Patience is also a form of action. ~Auguste Rodin

Labels

An artist is someone who produces things that people don't need to have but that he - for some reason - thinks it would be a good idea to give them. ~Andy Warhol
