Hello from my studio. Yes, the cobwebs did form, during the Olympics. I just glued myself to the television and enjoyed every moment of this peaceful joining of countries and athletics.
It gives me hope and faith that most people in the world are inherently good, and almost everyone wants to live in peace and harmony with each other. The Olympics (Para Olympics are coming up)also took away some of the light from the Politicians of the world ....who have been gnarly and irritating this year.
So, please give me a shout out (that would be a comment, in blog language), if you are back with me. I have been thinking of dropping out of blog land....but if I know that there is any kind of audience out there, I will continue.
Today, I went to class, and we had 'day camp', as our teacher called it. We went outside and sketched trees with charcoal. They were rough sketches from trees in the gardens...and we took only about a half hour to work on them. I loved the immediate feedback of charcoal. It was fresh and fun (and it had been a long time since I had worked in this medium).
I am working on a graphite project...actually several different projects. I will share them in the next posts.
Let me know if you are still out there.... please!
