the earth without art is just eh

I don’t know where I got that quote. That phrase I use for the title of this post. It doesn’t matter. Good things should be passed along. I believe the originator would be happy to have it passed along without a particular credit. There is satisfaction in having things go out there no matter (almost no matter) where they emanate from.

This is a small piece. 19″ wide by 12″ tall. I’ve decided to do some pieces that aren’t big. It was as it always is. A torture and a joy to create. Now that it’s “finished” (is anything ever finished?) I’m satisfied. Maybe even pleased. Thank you for coming to see it.

    Good to see you going again.
    How did the exhibition work out by the way?

      Which one? I did not get into the Marin Musem of Contemporary Art Drawing Show. Not “sophisticated” enough. Drawing can constitute a few swaths of ink strokes on paper. I have not sold anything anywhere but no matter. I like doing this. And I will continue to do it. I’m not doing it for the money. Fundamentally.

        You were about to publically show that drawing you did of me. Can’t remember where.

      Oh that went very well in the sense that my stuff got out in public. Again nothing sold but I got a lot of compliments which is always nice. People don’t buy portraits of other people unless there’s some social significance (Elvis Presley). See that’s OK. I just like to do them.

    I love this. The blank space allows me to place my arm around you and say, wow I’m glad you’re back!

    I love this….I see this stance often, she reminds me of someone here.

      Thanks Linda! Glad you like it. I like drawing people from this way of life.
