Long Series #1044.

This is one of those paintings that puzzled me. There are many individual parts of it that I like, and yet as a whole I really don’t care for it much. It was almost as if my mind had moved on to other things as I was working on this painting and I just wanted to get it done. That’s the great thing about working on a large series of paintings. I can experiment, and I can fail, but each painting is part of the whole, and each is part of a learning process. I’ve learned something. I just don’t know what yet.

A cloudy dull day, and the light in the studio is very evenly drab. More sticks to paint, and several projects to work on, so I’m happy as a clam. I’ve never really understood that expression…

A Wednesday Idea. Crazy Or Otherwise.


I had been doing a Wednesday List Of Ten Things I Like, but I began to feel it was getting stale, and I was running out of things I liked. I find that as I work I’m always coming up with ideas for art projects, and while some are good some are a bit crazy. So my idea this week is…

My idea is simple. On a 3×4 inch piece of paper draw the word draw.  Then go to a library or used bookstore and place your drawing in a dictionary by the definition of the word draw, and leave it for someone to find.

The rules are simple.

1. Draw the word draw. Don’t write it. Draw it. Whatever that means.
