i’ve missed my gouache, so on sunday i sat down at the kitchen table and painted the pot of orchids. painting white things is a challenge. let’s not kid ourselves. painting ANYTHING is a challenge.
i decided to give my new sketchbook a table of contents. i think i’ll organize it by theme: succulents/flowers/feathers/cats etc., 59 pages worth of drawings to categorize. doesn’t that sound monumental? and it will all be accomplished 1 drawing/painting session at a time. line by line. page by page. small sessions of sitting and looking. putting it all down on paper. day after day after day. i LOVE thinking about all those little actions yielding a completed book
and in the other smaller book below, i want to paint more quick gouache studies. this week my plan is to make a new one every day. sit at the kitchen table, put something in front of me, and paint it. just like that.
i started drawing/painting my shoes back in december. this is as far as i got…
maybe i’ll go grab a pair and put them on the kitchen table and paint them right now!
meanwhile out on the back patio this is happening:
what’s happening in your creative life? something good i bet. something BIG.
