It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but my autumn landscape has been finished for a while. I like it..wasn’t sure if I did. But that’s an artist’s constant conflict, so no matter.
I looked at it, and what came to mind is a bowl of Fruit Loops, my secret passion. So, here it is: October Fruit Loops.
Where have I been all this time? Mostly working the day job, but I’ve made some new friends and new connections.
November is always my worst, most depressing month. For my next drawing, I was going to do something called “Making Peace with November” but didn’t have a clue how that concept would interpret itself in a drawing. Well, November is almost here, I’m not depressed so, to heck with it.
As often happens with an artist I saw something that just stuck…a tranquil and healing image I’d like to explore. So once I get over this hullabalo of short handedness and sales at the store…..I’m going to work on it.
So if I don’t post before then…..Happy Halloween!
Most of autumn I hate. It’s the rain-soaked doorstep to winter. Bare trees, cold weather, and the beginning of the most stressful time of year for many folk…the Holidays, with a capital H. As in Hell.
But there is a little sliver in time between the end of the summer weather, and the really dark days as we approach the shortest day of the year.
October. Beautifully colored trees, fresh ripe apples, and the accompanying cider. Not to mention Halloween. I really envy those kids trick or treating. Not that I want the candy, but I would like to break loose and run all over the neighborhood in some kind of scary costume.
I’ve been putting together a calendar of my work, and noticed I didn’t have many fall pix: Just this from a while ago:
Its resolution isn’t good enough for publication.
So, with next year in mind, I bring you “Last One Standing’, the sketch.
Finally, I have done a version of the Manhattan skyline at dusk that I think I can live with. At least well enough. Now, I can go to my grave a satisfied person.
Christmas is coming, and I’m getting ready for the fair. That’s my focus for now, getting merchandise ready for it.
