One positive thing about the pandemic is that I get to spend some quality time in my studio every day, painting away at a wide variety of things.
Daily Whip Out:
"Here's Lookin' at You, Kid!"
Yes, gone are the days where I say, "Went home for lunch and whipped out a painting." Now I actually eat lunch at lunch time and take a nap afterwards.
Going back through my last sketchbook I couldn't resist, and tweaked a couple faces on this page, just for grins, and because I can't leave well enough alone.
And sometimes I force myself to do something in one sitting, and I move it around until it is done, almost in one stroke.
I can't explain it, but sometimes these Whip Outs just name themselves.
And, sometimes I just can't help myself.
Daily Whip Out: "Witch In The Wind"
And, of course, sometimes I have big plans that fall flat.
Other times I just like ripping off friends.
Daily Rip Off: "Ed Mell Poach"
Yes, on these, I am just trying to learn something. Okay, that's enough painting and poaching for one morning. Time for lunch.
