People who aren't artists (I think everyone is an artist--but I mean
people who don't make art), think that the process is straightforward --
you're an artist, so you make art. Yes. In part that's true, but like
all other types of work, in art there is background work, planning,
thinking -- and the actual making of art.
Today I've been researching where I want to go next when this
current complex painting is finished. If I work on it every day,
I hope I can show it to you next week.
Meanwhile, I'd hoped to make it part of a series, so I've been looking
through my research photos today, to think about what comes next.
Actually, it's been about what comes after my next painting, because
I know what I'm painting next.
For your entertainment I did a joyous portrait sketch.
Have a loving your life day.
