Finally getting to sit and sketch, but once again finding my vision outrunning my skill... frustrating!
It’s been a long, tiring week—my first back after 2 weeks off. Re-entry has been tough! So...I haven’t been very productive artistically this week. Hopefully will get a chance this weekend to work on something. It’s been supercool seeing all of y’all’s work though! Great stuff!
Just finished the line work for my new octopus piece. Over Christmas, I got a great book, “The Soul of an Octopus” about octopus intelligence—and these critters are amazing. Anyway, the book—which is excellent and which I devoured in a day—inspired this. I’ll try to figure out adding color in the next couple of days. This is 24 inches by 9 inches.

So...‘tis the wrapping season.  I am not one to wait until the last minute.  So, while I have sketched out another in the Opera Animals series, who knows when I’ll get there.  Here’s the fruits of my labor from last night:

I recently made the commitment to regularly create. When I was young, I typically worked on something tangible everyday,but I ended up choosing my music degree instead of my art degree and wound up with not much time or creative energy for my visual work.

So...now I am trying to be working on something all the time. I still perform, and still have to write way too much for my job, but the thing is, if you are an artist of any sort, ya gotta do it...art breaks out even if you don't have time...so you might as well give in!

Thank you! I do find DA very supportive. I know what you mean by finding time to work on your creations even though you may not have any. I have a family of my own, but I try hard to spend some time drawing or painting. Creating pieces is my form of therapy.

Amen! Sometimes making something is the only Tim I can find that “flow” which helps me let go of anxiety. I’m glad your here! How old are your kids? I have a 15 year old boy, and a husband, a dog and a cat.
