Easter Day

I took Holy Week off from blogging, but this evening I felt moved to post. I took time off because I had started to make art in order to post rather than posting what I was making. This tendency seems to be one of the dangers of keeping a blog. It felt very freeing to make things privately. And, I did still want to make things even if I knew they were going to be private. What I have learned from this experience is this: It is good to share what I am making. It is also good to make art that is not meant to be shared. I need to make time for both.

I think I'll take some time off of blogging for Holy Week.

Spontaneous Story Sketching

Sad girl meets unconscious guy on sidewalk with hole in his chest and SMOKE coming out.

Smoke turns into BIRDS which fly away into the sky.

In the SKY they find a sky island with trees. The birds sit in the branches and are happy.

Detail of Woods

Working on the woods behind the peacock. The pattern in the woods is almost more interesting to draw than the peacock himself.
