Redunnit

I volunteered at the Sono Art Festival in Norwalk, CT,  yesterday. I worked hard,but I had a lot of fun!  The artists were superb, and I made great friends, even if it was just for a few hours.  A very well run show and I hope to exhibit in it sometime in the future.

But as I looked, I realized my thoughts were right about selling a lot of small affordable art.  So, I looked back on some of the work I wanted to redo (failure is such an ugly word isn’t it?

For instance, I did this note card as a preliminary sketch, and loved it.  Can’t find it. I must have sent it out to someone. Silly me.

Then as a finished version, it left a lot to be desired.  It looks like a cosmic baseball glove to me. (Actually failure is more of an ugly and dismal word.)

So, finally to make up for all that dismalness, I decided to make on it one of my redos in a smaller scale.

Yes, once again “Venus and Mars are Alright, Tonight”.

venus and mars are alright, tonight

For those of you who caught my short-lived, remarkably self absorbed post the other day,  I apologize.

But an update, the featured picture “A Western Tao”, is alright after all.  Much to everyone’s surprise, my artwork survived the flood waters.

It’s a drawing of a man and a woman.  Every remember the book “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus”?  This drawing could be an illustration for that. Which brings us to a  quote from a Paul McCartney song:

“Venus and Mars are alright tonight”

Which cleverly segways us into my latest drawing.

Remember I was drawing a picture of the night sky and the Milky Way?  I was struggling to find a good name for it. So I finally decided on a title:

Venus and Mars are Alright Tonight

I had the start of another drawing, but realized it was an image that belonged to my winter depression.  So, my next drawing will be about spring.
