I’m about to do it, again.

Yes, indeed.  Once was not enough. Actually, three times was not enough.

I’m amazed at artists who don’t get bored doing the same subject, or the same motif, without being bored.  Not envious, mind you, just amazed.

Confession: I looked through my old drawings earlier and found a lot of repeat subjects.  Lots of landscapes, skyscapes, cats, and empty chairs.

Speaking of empty chairs, Vincent Van Gogh managed to paint complete psychological portraits through still lifes incorporating an empty chair.  What is so evocative, I keep being drawn to the same subject?

Of course, each is with a twist:

 

And so on…..

I’m about to do another chair…of course, with a twist.

Even Endless Comes to an End

So, I’ve been working…okay, intermittently working on this drawing.  I was rapt about the possibilities I could use to render the abstract shapes in the leaves.  I must admit, I thoroughly enjoyed doing this picture.  No doldrums, no boredom, I was on a roll.  But all good things (and yes, bad things) come to an end.  And so I’ve completed this yet nameless drawing.  I’m hoping for the light to break through to my mind with the title, the way the light breaks through the trees.

If only I could add the sound of hot weather insects….
