I don't recall when I made my last website post. Months have passed. My art was interrupted by research and publishing a blog, then came COVID.
But I recently completed a "cruise" ... our annual visit to my sister-in-law in California ended by returning to Georgia via the Panama Canal. Although I feared the boredom of doing nothing aboard a huge cruise ship, I found inspiration from a quartet of accomplished musicians whose passion and joy was something I wanted to sketch. I could sit close enough to capture some of their emotion and team-driven movement in real time in plein aire.
These sketches are only prelimiary works which I hope might lead to other paintings and a resumption of drawing on a more regular basis. And, if so, I promise to begin adding monthly posts of how that's going. How's that for a New Year's Resolution?
