Daily Sketches & Progress on the Art Exhibit

I have been fighting a chest infection for a month. Finally figured out how to go to the doctor & did so. Nothing like the benefits of a strong antibiotic to breath life back into me! I slept well & for a long time! Got up & drew from noon to 8 p.m.! What more, the drawings began to work. I had been slugging along with very little to show for it. So I’m looking forward to another good day tomorrow!

The PRESSURE is on to work on & to complete the drawings! I have a strong appreciation for SCAD students’ & their projects’ deadlines right now!

I have set up my cottage to be a studio! It took a week or so to figure out what felt comfortable to me.First, I needed to see ALL my drawings from Rome. The good, the bad and the ugly! All the drawings went up in the living room

.

Then I just looked and began to scribble ideas, words & images.

I began to work outside.  I needed to start the larger drawings.  I got two of the four pretty much thought out & the placement down! But I needed two more boards. I wanted to see all four drawings developing at the same time.

So I hit the train back to Rome for the wood place & came back with two more boards, 80cmx100cm. (I have not idea how many inches that is! So I must be adjusting to Italy!)

It’s fascinating to draw the Rome’s ruins.

It’s like having a conversation with the piece & discovering its secrets.

By drawing I discover the details of precision that make the column both strong, massive & elegant

I am investigating drawing on clay. I haven’t a clue how to do this. I fall back on my favorite model, my cat. I know her form. I am free then to play with the clay,  to play with a bowl’s circular format,  to see what happens if…Daily Sketch 1

Wednesday I leave for Rome. I leave a part of my heart at home with my cat, Fluffer Nutter, my constant M&M.
