Full moon in the afternoon

And that rhymes!

Here’s my latest.

Sometimes, coming up with a title is the hardest part of a drawing. I suppose I could go the way of “Untitled 1”, “Untitled 2″and so on. But what fun is that?

Most of my titles are pretty dull and boring, when I think about it.

Here are some pictures that need better titles:

This is “Pumpkin in the Sun “.



Yes,it’s a cat. Another cat. Everyone knows how much I love cats. As a matter of fact, one of my closest friends just gave me socks with cats on them as a Christmas gift. Cat socks! Love’em!

Ok,next:

“Stairway “


Dull name. Maybe if I change it,by giving it a destination!

Stairway to Heaven…naw,been used

Stairway to Nowhere. Obviously, though, the stairs go somewhere. Stairway to Somewhere? That’s just plain stupid.

How about “The Way Up”? Now that is a possibility.

Next:

“Forsythia “

Don’t have a clue for a better name. Not a clue.

And then there’s this:

“Green”

Well,that is obvious. Something like “Hobbit Home “? Not sure everyone knows what a hobbit is. I like the home part. Something to start working with.

In other news! I’ve entered an application for a juried show. Don’t know if I’ll be accepted yet, but I am thinking.

They have to be from the last two years. Ive divided my work from that time into Yes,No,and Maybe.

I can have eight, because that’s how many frames I have. Also…

Not so coincidentally, the pictures above fall into the Maybe category. What next?

No.

Every Rainbow Starts With a Storm…or a Sketch as the Case My Be

So, her’e the rough sketch…and rough it is.  It’s painfully lacking in interesting details, but then, that’s what sketches are for.

In the past, I would jump in full-sized, with no prior sketch, and waste mucho dollars on paper, doing version after version. I now eliminate problems from having done the sketch…and since the paper I use costs upwards of $5 that’s significant.  And less emotionally frustrating, I might add.

So, I’m also hearing the voice of my artist mother as I look at this sketch…..”If you add a couple of details, your picture will tell a story”.

“But, Mom, I don’t want to tell a story!  I want to create a mood and an emotion”.

So, I look a this sketch..it has an Asian artwork feel to it.

I will add details to it, and hopefully create a mood, and tell a story.  Yes, Mom.
