On the easel: A peek at "Lydia"

Life is returning to normal and that means lots of art to make! It's crunch-time here, only 3 weeks until we leave for Japan.  Any and his brother both conveniently have birthdays between Christmas and New Years, so we thought it'd be nice to spend them together.

I do love being busy, not just for financial purposes but creatively, too.  There is no time to fret and second guess your instincts when you have 4 paintings to do in 3 weeks.  It really helps to power through problems, too.

For instance, when I was 99% done with this Beetlejuice painting, I DROPPED MY BRUSH ON LYDIA's FACE ... And yes it totally had black gouache on it.

but there was no time to hyperventilate... So I wiped it down and started over.

She doesn't look like Winona Ryder, but I think it's okay. Can't lose sleep over it.

1988 Issey Miyake shoes…

Do you recognize all the things and places in the photos?

Put my name in creatively for the first time
