February 22, 2011Went home for lunch and worked on an aerial illustrated map for Orme Ranch. Got some working sketches going. Then shifted gears and whipped out a patina painting study, just pushing gray-green paint around to see where it goes.
Let it set up, went over to the house and took a shower. Came back and grabbed it to take into the office. Very interesting:
A peek through the clouds? I will add this to my Failure Pile and in the next several days see if I can take it to the next level. Robert Ray is going to come out and video my current Failure Pile. I must admit, it is quite high. If I was trying to achieve the above effects I would be hard pressed to capture the nuance at work here. Perhaps I should leave well enough alone. We'll see. I'll keep you posted.
Is it art? Probably not, but then I sort of agree with Lenny:
"The only honest art form is laughter, comedy. You can't fake it. . .try to fake three laughs in an hour—ha ha ha ha ha—they'll take you away, man. You can't.
