Tick..tock...365 Days of Drawing...


This week the daily drawing challenge for 2010 has dragged. A bit like going for a root canal and watching the hands on a dentist's clock on the wall. Tick tock...

Please don't email me and say: "Well, if you don't feel like it, why are you doing this challenge?". Those types of emails annoy me.

My energy for the challenge has been low probably because I am in the middle of home re-model, starting a new commission which always commands attention as it should, and a daughter returning from overseas. All nice distractions which would usually keep my sketchbook firmly in my backpack. Mid-week, I have got the job done nevertheless.

Here is today's humble drawing. Enough said. I am hoping to put some paint on it...I like the sadness in her face. She is probably watching a clock on a wall.

What gets you inspired?

Hello! Don't feel bogged down by those petty e-mails (I'm sure you don't) But just think of the masters back in the day who most likely endured daily challenges -- I would imagine even more so because at the time it was a matter of survival. Anyway, they found Caravaggio's bones today. I just thought of that. He is one of my favorite painters and to see the world give up so much to search for his bones just goes to show you that great artists like him never go forgotten!

thanks for the post Chris...wow...amazing about those bones. He was a wild man that Caravaggio. And a wonderful painter.
