As it so often seems to do, life intercedes (or is it interferes?). I have been, and will continue to be incredibly busy for the foreseeable future. While I have to acknowledge that my art output and ambitions will be slowing down due to some important obligations, I will not be giving in or up. I will continue to post on this blog while working my way toward the life I have always wanted and have been working for since I could hold a pencil. There are no roadblocks insurmountable, only detours.
That said, I suspect that my posts will be briefer and my artwork more of the sketch variety. My hope is that the new “quick and dirty” Made of Lines will prove to be even more fruitful and satisfying moving forward.
This weekend I worked up this quick watercolor sketch. Clearly I was thinking of my Despereaux digital painting. I have been looking at this sketch all weekend, reminded of the wonderful vitality of the watercolor medium, and its storytelling potential.
