drawing a day ~ week 22


drawing a day ~ week 22 Originally uploaded by dressform.

feeling really scattered. i think this was the first week where i had a hard time getting the drawings done. it almost felt like i was grasping at oily straws falling through my fingers.... can you tell??

i think it's partially because my brain felt a bit overloaded this week.

so... promised art news.... if you are in LA - the richard levy gallery should have some of my work in their booth at the
art la fair in santa monica this weekend [technically from thurs night through sunday]

i had a very lovely conversation with the countess earlier today. i find talking to her very grounding. like parts of what we need to say can go unsaid. does that make sense? i am happy that our work will be co-mingling in the next few days, but am more looking forward to actually gazing into her eyes..... speaking of said/unsaid - thank you all for all your support from the last post. i feel a closeness and kinship to many of you out there! your thoughts and hopes and well wishes for my grandma were so wonderful to receive. she is doing better and hopefully will be home in the next few days.... fingers crossed.

in theory i realize that this is MY BLOG and that hopefully you all are along for the ride via a hilly, bumpy, or smooth path, but it is still comforting to know that i may meander and you will stay with me!

i have decided that for the rest of this week i am going to try and post more about art that i have found inspiring of late. i have gone to a few shows and have had things spinning around in my brain.... so.... more soon!

So glad to hear your grandma is better (see?)!

And your drawings SHOULD reflect your feelings and moods, that's what it is all about. You are not a robot and we wouldn't want you to be! :)
I love them, especially this one:
