Distraction

I know many artists are making sad art,reflecting the current times. I’m not good at that, my attempts at sad, thoughtful art have been damn depressing. Who needs that?

The best I can do is bittersweet.

I want to try to contribute something during this sad time, but I don’t have much in way of resources. I do, however, have toilet paper.

So,I guess, as always, I’ll do happy artwork.

Because if I can distract some anxious, or bored people with a few pretty pictures, that’s something.

Not to mention a few words to read. I don’t know about you, I am starting to read labels on cans of tomato sauce.

Soon, I’ll be drawing them.

Presenting: MUD!

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday, whichever you celebrate. I’m sending good thoughts for everyone for a wonderful 2016.  I’ll be presenting my worst of the year,soon, and it may include THIS:

That’s mud alright, in it’s basic boring form.  When I took the photo, I was intrigued by the sculptural quality of the leaves, and the contrasting texture of the wet soil.  Somehow, all this didn’t translate well into the drawing, so damn, damn, damn!  All I can say is damn.

Anyway, I’m left with the question, due I pursue this more carefully in a full sized version?  I do have an idea that might make it sing, and since I have no other idea giving me blinding inspiration at the moment….if I want to keep my drawing routine up, I guess I do.

So, hopefully, I’ll have an update by New Years Eve.
