It is summer and here is a re-run. But you may not have seen it, I hardly did! It was not even linked into my Video Category. I enjoyed watching it, it has inspired me to make a few more. This was first posted October 29 2006, just a month or so into the project. I intended to keep making videos, but just doing the sketches took over my life. The time to bring out some of the best in the project with music, narration & images is still ahead! Even more I’d like to make them about the stuff I am doing now. Stay tuned.
The video re-captures for me how my journey into art began. If I say so myself I like the closing line, “What I want has very little to do with it.”
My first Thousand Sketches video on YouTube
I am working on a landscape project. As with the Earth Crosses the series has it origin here in Thousand Sketches. I am doing new landscapes and I am re-working some of the landscapes from the Thousand Sketches – for example, on my Art Journal “In this moment…” (now ART category in Psyberspace) you can see the new version of this one. The plan is to do them in oils as well.
I am pleased to see I have made this list of 101 Top Art Blogs. Thanks Kim for all the effort you put in to compile this list. It is a useful list, there are many artists there I really like.
And Thousand Sketches is 51 on Top Blog.
Here are the 10 posts about books. Some posts are about more than one book. They often have a sketch of mine to go with them.
I bought, borrowed & read a hell of a lot more than that while doing the Thousand Sketches. But these are the ones I blogged. I loved them all.
Sometimes to get the the main book stuff you need to click “Read the rest of this item” that’s where I put images by other people.
From here on I am writing about the books I read on In this moment… and they are in a category called… Books. A vague new year resolution is to make more thorough reviews of each book. But who cares? The reviews on Amazon usually do all we need. Maybe I’ll just quote bits I like.
