This is a study for The Feast of Venus and properly belongs on my other blog, but I've gotten in the habit of posting here.
I'm thinking of calling it The Joy of Sex.
This blog will follow the work I am doing in the studio apart from my work on "The Feast of Venus". To see the progress of my figurative project "The Feast of Venus", please go to my other blog "Creative Process". All images on this blog are copyrighted and may not be reproduced without permission.
No, this is not one of my fellow AOA refuseés after getting The Call. It is a drawing from this week's life drawing session.
Nulla Dies Sine Linea is the motto of the Art Students League. It translates roughly as "No Day Without a Line" but it means "You should be drawing every day you schlmiel! Get out that sketch pad!"
é=alt 130 yesssss!
Last night I spent three hours writing a blog post.
The post was meant to be a little philosophical gem about the Art of the Future. I sat down at the computer, flipped through my mental notes, cleared my throat, vocalized a few phrases, and mounted this virtual soap box to begin what was meant to be a masterful declamation of Ideas.
Masterful perhaps it was - sadly it was also quite long and not entirely coherent.
No problem. I got out the scissors and trimmed a little off the top. Unfortunately that made the argument uneven and I was forced to cut some points from the other end. Three hours later, at 1AM (considered late in Vermont), I had whittled the manifesto down to two very short paragraphs which may or may not have had any logical connection. Determined to post or die, I scrapped both, wrote one brilliantly condensed paragraph in their stead and went to bed - only to awake four hours later seriously doubting the brilliance of said paragraph. Throwing on a robe, I scurried down to the computer only to have my worst fears realized...let's just say that post has been remanded to rewrite.
Thank God I didn't quit the day job. Here is a sketch for a figure at the Game Supper.
