Three More Sketches from My Attic Discovery

Oh, I’m so glad I found these; I really was wondering what happened to the first one, which was a colored pencil study for a color woodcut that I never made.  The second sketch was an ink study for a single-color (B/W) woodcut that I did make, which came out well.  The third image was just an ink sketch of an in-progress painting in my tiny studio setup in the tiny house I shared with a roommate in 1988.  I did complete two paintings like that in the sketch — very colorful ones.  🙂

…father remembered the composer John Cage saying to him during the 1950’s often came to his mind: ”When you start working, everybody is in your studio – the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas – all are there. But as you continue, they start leaving one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you’re lucky, even you leave.”
