Heavy Going…

A shift in my energy… I don’t want to know about it. I don’t want to sketch it, or blog it. I liked the bursting & the buzzing but now… the predictable slowing down. I don’t know how to draw it, I don’t want to.

I have been posting sketches up & want take them down! Argh. I have some more & don’t really want to put them up. So I have the phrase in mind, “sketch my way out of it.” And here I am blogging anyway, sticking with the process. It could well get harder yet!

Right or wrong, to be self reflective and autobiographical, to me, is the one area of this work, right now anyway, that I think is… edgy. I have not found sites where the work process is noted as I do here. I’d like to see more of it. Duane Keiser from http://duanekeiser.blogspot.com is doing something similar in his blog: On Painting he is a pioneer in this painting online.

So more about the process:

Today I did some sketches of Manuka seed heads. I took pictures of plants while up at Mt. Lyford a week or so ago – and then I could not wait to sketch them. Today I wonder why I am doing it.

Perhaps it is that I want to draw something small.

I have two of them I may do more.

Now I notice something… I feel heavy, and I sketch light.

I feel like posting them up, but I have two or three others to post first. Hard to keep up with myself. This is about the Manuka sketches… I can add links later.
