Hell Is Coming With Me!

January 14, 2016
   A brisk 46 degrees out this morning. Got a fire going in the studio stove and since Kathy is in Turkey, I have nothing but art to concentrate on in the morning. That's leads to some interesting little studies, like this one:

Daily Whip Out: "Hell's Comin With Me!"

       Got up this morning and worked on sketches of various van Gogh paintings. Trying to study his approach. I was intrigued by the landscape design, at center.

Daily Whip Out: "Van Gogh Sketches"

   So I decided to expand that design into a scratchboard:

Daily Whip Out: "The Early Riser"

   This is based on the fact that van Gogh got up at four and hit the road by five a.m. almost every day to find spots to paint. He as truly a fou roux (a redheaded madman).

"Happiness does not lie in results, but in the effort."
—Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky
