A lot of the work of an artist doesn’t make for particularly good blog posts.  For instance, yesterday, I dropped off two pictures at an art show, and put together an application for Percent for Art.  Just boring stuff I gotta do.

In the online forum I go to, they say an artist has to put in as much time on publicity as doing actual artwork.

But today, I  worked a little on the chair picture.  I’ll have to take it slow, it’s kind of a delicate drawing.  Here it is in an early stage.  The scan makes it look splotchier than it really is.  I feel I am getting the feeling of sunlight in it.
