Oil on Panel
I received a Oneness Blessing last night. I don't know exactly what made me want to go. I took my oldest daughter and she was pretty anxious about the whole thing. Afterwards we went to dinner at Outback Steakhouse and had a Bloomin' Onion. I love those things. She loves them too. I love her. She loves me. There was an abundance of love all over the place.
This morning every child in my house left. The house got very very quiet and it was a strange feeling. I haven't had a day all alone in my house since Mr. Coast Guard came home. He leaves tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn and I think I miss him already. That's not hard to do since he is at his girlfriends house until her parents kick him out later tonight.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
