A Failure In Progress

February 22, 2011

Went 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.
—Lenny Bruce
