So far this year, I’ve been working on some small studies for larger works.  I may post the studies when the larger works are done, but that could be awhile.

In the meantime, here is a small watercolor pencil painting on paper from a couple of days ago.  I started from the point of continuing my thoughts/impressions of Bontecou, but decided to aim for a simpler design and a slightly subdued (for me) palette.   I love how this piece turned out!

The problem with art today: the artist believes he must find a style (or a schtick really) and defend it with his life. And if all the schticks are already taken, he must pull one out of his ass. He must find one, invent one, fabricate one, for he can be nothing if he cannot be original.
