Almost forgot about this little sketch. At some point I plan on doing a little Geisha series.

Falling in Love again
Over the past few years I have fallen out of love with drawing. My painting has suffered because of it. I just put big shapes of color down and didn't really put my attention on the drawing. It has become painfully obvious to me. Guess I have or had a foolish notion that while I paint it will all fall together. Unfortunately this isn't always the case, not even close, least not for me. So in effort to fall back in love with drawing I went to a gesture session TO DRAW!!!
going to make this a priority once again.

did these studies on the same day last weekend. the bottom one I painted looking through a fence from across the street .It's a Steel mill and I was watching them dump this hot shit on the back of this dump truck. I would like to go back during the night and try to capture it. I was painting under a overpass and cars would drive by me getting on the freeway, it was very busy and noisy. I don't know what it was but people kept honking at me. Everytime it scared the crap out of me . So I painted fast, only trying to get the color. next time.

I start to paint this little sketch outside and about 15 minutes into it a old friend of mine walks by out of the blue and we start chatting while I paint. In the process I didn't watch the valves and the piece ended up not being strong. Of course all this an excuse for the suckage.

Under the Over

Did these outside all last saturday. I spent no longer than 2 hours on a piece.
