WTH?….or, What Happened Here?

I was going through my old winter drawings, looking for something, damned if I can remember what.  I came across this, which failed in the purpose of a cheerful winter beach.  The figure is alone and looks lonely.  It looks like the mood I had that winter…lonely, blue, and wondering why the heck I’d ever moved from NYC.

 

Totally, totally wrong. It was meant to be an interpretation of a real event in my life.  The day was cold, but bright and clear.  I was with my then boyfriend, early in our relationship.  The general emotion was that of the excitement of being deeply in love, and being loved back.  That day, that morning was one the most joyful memories of my life.

But this drawing ….looks pretty damned depressing.

The name of this drawing was “Winter Beach”.  While I was drawing the revision I intended to call it “Winter Beach 2”.  My current boyfriend came along and said it was “Two People Looking at a Wave”.  So, here it is:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trucking…like the Do Da man…………

Somewhere, deep in the Midwest, a man (or a woman) is driving a brown truck to a small town destination in Iowa.  When the package he or she delivers, finally gets to this house in this is isolated area, presumably Friday, I will unveil my last drawing.  In the meantime, I’m just trucking along.

Some of you may remember this past summer I came up with this, also featured in my failures of 2014 post.

 

dancing

Completely missed what my intention was….some colorful female alien wrestling with a shadow in a bow-tie was far from what I had in mind.  I was going through a kind of rough relationship time, and I think it shows.

But I still am intrigued by the idea of a dancing couple.  My thought is a relationship is a dance, always moving, always give and take.  Or to paraphrase Woody Allen, you’ve got a dead shark.

Anyway, part of the problem with the above sketch is that I did the figures from my imagination.  Didn’t do too bad a job, thanks to drawing so many naked people in art school.  However it just wasn’t hitting what I wanted.  So, I took a pic from the internet, to be changed greatly, so as not to violate copyright.

 

Argh, couldn’t find it…must be on the other computer.  So, I give you this.

And so, I keep working on the sketch.  It’s shaping up to be a blast from the past!
